rivendell ,

Good stuff!

This is my favorite podcast! I am a mental health professional, and I find every episode powerful, entertaining, informative, and meaningful.
Just like I have never been to a bad meeting, I have never heard a bad podcast of the mental illness happy hour!

I love you Paul but Jameela Jamil is absolutely insufferable.

Favorite

This podcast is my absolute favorite. I always look forward to hearing Paul and various guests talk about mental health/illness because they are out to de-stigmatize talking about what’s going on inside your head. Open. Honest. Raw. Vulnerable. I could go on and on. Love this would HIGHLY recommend. 😘💕
