I’m a new listener and the episode with Coz Green was incredible on so many levels. Coz is a 3x suicide survivor, formerly depressed, almost 400 lb. loner, who listened to the lies that he was alone and not enough. That is, until he found the right treatment, had someone who reached out and listened, and he took 100%responsibility for his life. You must check this podcast out, it will blow your socks off!
