    1 Year Birthday Episode / 'Mental Health for All'

    Hello! Charley and Colin here. It's our podcast birthday! One year ago, we launched Brave Your Day - episode 1 with musician and composer Brian McAlpine. To celebrate our anniversary, we're looking back on two previous conversations with guests Ashton Applewhite and Ross Muir, and a discussion recorded during the initial COVID-19 lockdown on stamina. We're also exploring 'mental health for all' - the theme of this year's World Mental Health Day (10th October).
