The podcast will take a look at how our perceptions of ourselves and the world around us impact how we relate to one another. With a male and female perspective from guests in different fields and life experiences, we aim to use real-world examples of how the looking glass self-theory has an impact on all relationships. We will address societal, cultural, and mental health concepts in everyday terms as we work towards personal growth that allows us to build authentic relationships and attract connections meant for us.

    Wonderland After Dark - Episode 3 - Chris Watts

    Wonderland After Dark - Episode 3 - Chris Watts

    This episode, much like all the Mad Hatter episodes, will be exploring some graphic stories and details that may be a trigger so please consider your own trauma stories and experiences when deciding to listen.

    Mad as a Hatter. Do you know the story behind the phrase? The insanity behind the character? The phrase was used to describe someone who’s crazy or prone to unpredictable behavior.

    Between the 18th and 19th centuries, hatters used Mercury in their creations. The Mercury poisoning resulted in what was believed to be insanity and chaotic behavior; thus, “Mad as a Hatter”, was born. The following stories are my picks for further discussion. How the impact of mental health, relationship challenges, and circumstances can lead to murder.

    While it goes without saying that a mental health diagnosis does not create a murderer. However, in these cases, a diagnosis left untreated, the opportunity, and the right catalyst can create a monster.

    Won’t you come with me as we enter Wonderland After Dark? Don’t worry, it won’t hurt.

Levi told me to give 5 stars. Like the content.

Outstanding

I ran across one of the creators on social media and promise them I would check their podcast out. I am throughly impressed with not only their guest, but the authenticity of the conversation. Educational as well as entertaining. I will become a supporter and fan!

Required listening for adulting

Lots of podcast advice out there feels forced and insincere. This show is, happily, an exceptional example of a podcast getting it right. Relatable, thoughtful and done with good humor, this should be mandatory listening for adults. At least the ones I’m forced to deal with on the daily.
