shootfrank ,

Great podcast!

Time to talk covers big topics in an easy to understand and sensitive way, with a great roster of guests. Definitely one of my favourite podcasts to listen to around mental health and well-being, and one of very few that consistently gives me lightbulb moments around my own journey. Highly recommend!

Honest Conversations

Alex's podcast takes listerners on an intimate journey with each guest and opens up conversations that are really had. Whether it's about trauma, love, sacrifice or regret, Alex approaches each conversation with a tenderness and respect that they deserve. This is a podcast not to be missed!

A regular and a favourite !

I thoroughly enjoy this podcast as it’s informative and also for the variety of guests invited on and topics discussed! All things emotional intelligence and wellbeing, especially a great podcast highlighting the ways that men navigate society and it’s pressures.
