Mental health is everywhere. Period. The human experience; work, hobbies, interests, entertainment, challenges, relationships etc. is unique and seen through our own individual 'lenses'. Take a journey through these experiences together with a mental health professional (me!), his dry wit, and guests from across the landscape of everyday life he convinced to join him as they have candid conversations- all through the lens of mental health. Almost like you do...but recorded. No corn or dads were harmed during production.

Obvious statement: Listening to this podcast, while meaningful and entertaining, does not come close to replacing professional support. Please feel encouraged to seek proper care if you are struggling. Please do not take us super seriously...we don't :) We can always be reached at www.cbtbaltimore.com

    This is more than a conversation about fashion and modeling. This is a candid conversation about mental health being everywhere. From our own couches to the catwalks of Milan. We are not as different as we may imagine.

    Elsie Ramsey (www.biggerthandepression.com) was a high fashion model earlier in her life and is still active in the modeling world. She is an advocate for all things mental health and is transparent about the interesting, the positive, and the challenging that exists in the modeling world.

    You may be surprised at the parallels between her experiences and your own.

    Run, Jake, Run!

    Run, Jake, Run!

    What comes to mind when you hear the word 'running'? Is it dread or a surge of excitement? People tend to be opinionated about running and have strong feelings about it. I can relate to those that groan when the notion of going for a run comes up. I can also appreciate those who passionately identify themselves as a runner and have much respect for those who embrace the challenge of a long-distance marathon.

    This episode is co-hosted by Jake Fishman who might all himself a novice but is far from it. He is candid about his experiences and shares thoughts about his brother who struggled with addiction and infused a deeper meaning into his running endeavors. A great listen!

    Behind the Laughs Part I

    Here.We.Go.
    Buckle up friends because while I may be mellow and 'chill' I brought along the high octane energy of stand-up comedian Tommy O'Neil (http://www.tommyoneill.net/) as a co-host. Tommy has a ton of insight into what is behind all the jokes and the laughter in the comedy world. He candidly shared challenges he's experienced which were all very relatable. Well, maybe not the psychedelics. Tommy is not shy about his opinions and has an endless amount of stories about comedians you've heard of. You do not want to miss this one! We had so much to say this turned into another double feature :)

    Is academia worth it?

    Is academia worth it?

    The world of academia is one that is vast and not clearly defined. It is also one that people have strong opinions about. Being part of 'academia' can be both a rewarding and frustrating experience. Just reaching the entry-level employment status in academia is a major accomplishment. In today's episode, Shmuel is joined by co-host Dr. Jedidiah Siev, Ph.D. (https://www.jedsiev.com/) to unpack the journey of an academic with all the bumps along the way. Those in and out of that world will surely appreciate the conversation :)
