Not helpful

I listened to their am I bipolar or just moody episode and I got about 5 minutes into them describing how they feel about moodiness and people insulting others by calling them bipolar and had to stop. It wasn’t helpful at all. It was like listening to two random people talking about something they knew nothing about.
