Let me just start by saying, I absolutely love the idea of this podcast. Mental health is an issue that needs to be taken seriously and, it’s great to see people advocating a further discussion.
I think Martin is an excellent producer/promoter for the podcast. But he shouldn’t be hosting, he’s too light hearted and clearly in over his head when the subject matter takes a darker turn.
I’ll stay subscribed, but I probably won’t listen much. Unless someone else takes over as host.
I’ve given this a 4 star rating, as I do like the overall idea and output. I just feel that people need to stick to their strengths. Martin, you’re a producer. Not a presenter.
A strangely light conversation about depression
Good podcast - but hypocritical
While the podcast itself is excellent, it's ironic that the man hosting it, Martyn Havell, has regularly posted a series of tweets during the last few years attacking someone with psychotic depression. The person in question has not responded once to the tweets which appear to be unfair and groundless.
I believe that to run a mental health podcast while deliberately attacking a person he knows suffers from mental health issues is hypocritical.
