Earbuds fused to my ears ,

This podcast saved my life

No joke

The only podcast guaranteed to lift me

I could (and might!) write many pages about how much I love this podcast, the host and creator Paul, and Gracie and every other guest. There is absolutely nothing else that I can count on to consistently soothe me when I’m wading through the dark and murky waters of my own mental health issues. When I’m feeling well, I listen and learn about mental health issues that effect the rest of the population. I listen when I’m well, I listen when I’m unwell, I listen when I’m hit with a crying spell, I listen when I’m feeling positive about the world. I listen and feel less alone, more connected, more worthy, more vulnerable, and more authentic. I cannot say enough good things about this pod. (And Paul, if you’re reading this, words cannot express my thanks for all that you do. Please take time to let my praise and positivity wash over you. You’ve saved me from so much unnecessary darkness and brought me into the light of understanding and self care/self love without EVER feeling like I’ve failed or I’m left out when I slide back into the darkness.)

Thank you, Paul Gilmartin

One of the finest humans, and gift to mankind, Paul Gilmartin somehow makes depression, anxiety and self-loathing hilarious and relatable. I cannot love this podcast any harder! It’s about the only thing I can tolerate in my earbuds when my world feels dark and grim. Paul’s easy self deprecating wit, and clever humor make me laugh and smile often. I also feel less lonely knowing this exists. Thank you and Keep up the great work!
