Sincere, genuine, and eye opening. I feel like this podcast helps moves society in the right direction one listener at a time. Thanks Will Hall.
Dr. Phil for psychology
Dear Will Hall,
Thank you for this earnest, and sensitive podcast. I especially enjoyed your interview with Olga Runcimann. Though you have taken a break - well earned - for a niche podcast you have merited much gratitude.
My mum @Rossa Forbes was a blogger on MIA, and when she stopped I felt disconnected and no way to fill that hole. I think you have shown that meaningful conversations can be had beyond Frazier Crane style pop psychology for general interest and general education.
Many of us have not, will not “grow up” quick enough to catch the likes of your interests, but as between Religious podcasts which edify but narrow the mind, we’re without a guide.
I “work” within a Clubhouse International framework for people with mental illness and as everywhere in America we suffer from an undersupply of intelligent and willful leadership but if we would carefully quiet the chatter and listen to voices like yours, there is hope.
The truth-beyond the absurdity of the system
Will Hall and Madness Radio allowed me to survive the narrow minded messages of graduate clinical mental health studies. This should be required listening for any mental health training program. Will is an awesome advocate for choice, wellness, and accepting who we are in infinite variety. If you want help to bust out of your box this is the show for you. I was bummed to run out of new episodes having listened to every one on iTunes back to March 2006. Phew, there is another whole year of episodes available on the Madness Radio website.
