Since October of 2019, this podcast is like a diary about my life and mental health journey. Now in season 5, I have conversations with amazing people related to mental health and wellness. The goal is to end stigma and raise awareness about mental health, especially for men and the black community. Podcasting is now therapeutic and part of my self care routine; without it, I am not sure I would be on my healing journey.

    DE 104: "Where is my Tank?" Featuring Licensed Mental Health Therapist & Author, Keisha Barnes [Part 2 of 2]

    AND WE ARE BACK WITH PART TEEEWWWW!!!! In case you decide to skip part 1 (which I don't understand why but Issa free world!) the description of the show is at the bottom.

    I won't hold you too long in the description for PART 1 - However do 2 things for me please...

    1 - Make sure you check out part 1, Diary entry 103, THIS IS PART 2!

    2 - Be sure you get a copy of Keisha's Book --> http://www.keishabarnes.com

    - Show Description - 

    In this diary entry, I am going by Mental Health Therapist and Published Author, Keisha Barnes. Keisha's book, "Where's Your Tank," completely changed my life and how I view self care. The analogy behind the book is really a comparison to a gas tank. Where is your tank for YOU? Half, quarter tank? Or are you like me, always running on E!

    I hope you all are able to take something positive away from this episode, which I am certain you will. I read Keisha's book a few months ago and I am still implementing changes into my life. However, as it says in the book, this is not a overnight change. It takes time and you must give yourself time to heal and adjust - we are human at the end of the day.

    DE 102: Finding Peace Through Creativity with the founder of LONE N DISASTER Streetwear Brand

    DE 102: Finding Peace Through Creativity with the founder of LONE N DISASTER Streetwear Brand

    In this diary entry, I have a special guest, Zel, who is the founder and creator of the streetwear clothing brand called LONE N DISASTER.
    Born in Denver Colorado, he had what he describes as a “typical rough childhood, like other colored kids.” He experienced the loss of my mother at the age of 9 due to gun violence and his father was in and out of jail most of his life.
    Despite all odds, this young man has blossomed into a creative genius who is sure to make waves in the fashion industry. He says he found his peace through designing clothes, fashion and being creative. Zel is on his way to being an icon and aims to be a global creator and influence people through all life disasters, by promoting peace through LND STREETWEAR.
    It was an absolute pleasure to have this man on my podcast, to share space to talk about his brand and what he has already accomplished. A beacon of great positive energy, Zel is someone you want to know.
    Check out his website here.

    I'm BACK B*TCHES!!! LOL JK nah but for real, I am very excited to be back recording and publishing episodes. Season 5 of Diary of a Mad Black Man is going to be the the longest running season ever! This season will mostly have exceptional guest who are in the space of raising awareness for mental health and being active in ending stigma and creating support for those who have mental health and wellness challenges.



    In this diary entry, I speak directly to you. Yes YOU! My Tribe! It is really setting the stage for what is to come with my podcast. 

    I want you to engage with me in the social media world too. Please be sure you're following me on whatever platforms we both use. I plan to be very strategic with what I create moving forward; basically meaning I really care about you, this podcast, my diary, and my journey as a podcaster. At the end of the day, I'm a creative, and I'm sensitive about my sh*t.

    I am thankful to be at this stage of my healing journey and able say this is episode 101!!!!! [YYYEEEESSSIIIRRRRRRR}

    I would have never believed you if you told me in October 2019 I would eventually have 101 episodes! 

    I hope you enjoy this, and many more episodes to come. I look forward to connecting with my tribe and making dope memories together.

    DE 98: A moment of extreme happiness July 25, 2020

    DE 98: A moment of extreme happiness July 25, 2020

    This diary entry is one of the few from around this time that I did not have to do much editing to. I was very happy with the space that I was in. I was on an extreme high and I was filled with joy. To meet so many amazing people through social media, restored my faith in humanity and social media itself. 
    I hope you will begin to use social media for good and be intentional with how it is utilized. It has become a place of refuge at times and connected me to people I would have never met. Especially if I had not started sharing my story and talking about what I have been through.

Inspirational!

This podcast is amazing! The host is honest and real about many topics that society is too fearful to discuss. I love his passion for mental health especially for black men. Definitely worth the listen and your time.
