We Are What We Overcome – Pilot Podcast

We Are What We Overcome

A couple of months ago, Matt McGuinness of Matt McGuinness & the MLC asked me and my other half,  Marilyn to help sharpen up his mental health chat & music show. It was fun, and challenging, both to script and think about.

Now he’s adding a podcast to generate further opportunities to talk about and hear people talk about their mental health. Our desire is that it should ultimately become as normal as discussing having a cold or a broken arm. This is one step in that journey. I joined Matt and our new mate Huez Everns to talk about Matt’s show, as well as the general topic of self-care and some other rambling bits. Thanks to Neil Munro for tireless editing and possibly succeeding in getting a coherent conversation out of us.

Speaking of colds, I had a terrible cold when we recorded this, so apologies in advance. This is our pilot episode, with more to follow as we travel about a little with the live show, so keep your peepholes peeped. We will almost certainly get neater and tidier as we do this more. We’d love to know what you think.
