A weekly dose of distilled wisdom
I used to be an avid listener of BBC Radio 4’s “Thinking Allowed”. The little black fish podcast is even better. In a warm, relaxed and engaging manner, Dr. Sara allows her guests to go very deep into their topics and reveal distilled wisdom that you can never find in an NPR or BBC style podcast. Yet, because of Dr. Sara’s clinical expertise and academic standing, the quality of conversations and cerebral satisfaction that you get is unsurpassed compared to so many podcasts that are out there. This is a really high quality, engaging and thought-provoking program that you would look forward to listening every week.
Through a new lens ideas seem fresh and different
I have listened to two episodes so far. One about the me too movement and the other about well being.
I enjoyed exploring new and different angles of the me too movement through Dr Nasserzadeh’s engaging questions rooted in her work as a therapist and her innate capacity for empathy. Particularly, I found the question about men in the era of me too very interesting, as a wife and a mother to a son.
In the episode about well being I found new vocabulary to express how I am feeling during lockdown. My life is considerably slower than it was before lockdown and I have time to “flourish”. I felt validated when Dr Nasserzadeh shared the experience some of her clients have had of being anxious about not being anxious. I have certainly felt that. Wondering if there is something wrong with me if I am doing ok during the pandemic.
Thank you for the work you do
I have really enjoyed listening to these podcasts so far. I find these podcast series essential during the lockdown. Each episode covers unique topics relevant to everyday life. It is priceless to listen to experts from all over the world while you can sit back on your couch and learn something new.
