Customer ReviewsSee All
Geoff is a phenomenal interviewer and uses his lived experience to guide and navigate difficult topics with his guests while never overshadowing their stories. This is one of the few podcasts where I regularly reflect on things I learned from each episode on a regular basis. I am so grateful for the honesty these artists exhibit in exploring the challenges of creative life!
Welcoming, approachable, funny, important, human
This podcast is a gem: friendly approach, funny guests, relatable content, and a deeply important mission. It’s like having friends over for coffee. There’s no pretense, no expectations, no sense of being manufactured. It’s genuine and human, connected and concerned. Only 4 episodes have been released, and I’m already completely in love.
Great intro. As a hardcore fan of Geoff’s work, it is exciting to listen to him explore the world of mental health in the industry..... Congrats Geoff
