I'm a fan of The Parapod and of Ian Boldsworth's (this podcast's creator) FUBAR Radio show so I thought I'd enjoy The Mental Podcast. I wasn't wrong.
Insightful. Funny. Intelligent. Entertaining.
Thank you for creating this podcast. It is brilliant.
I thought I'd check this out as I enjoy the Parapod. No regrets. I listened to all six episodes (series 1) in one sitting - and I'm not even mentally ill! ;)
A series of personal stories that can apply to all.
This series of 6 podcasts isn't 'easy' listening. It is, however, compelling and takes a very pragmatic and honest approach of the discussion of mental illness. While not a comedy podcast, as one would expect from Ian Boldsworth (formerly known as Ray Peacock), it certainly feels like part of his cannon. His own story is key to this podcast. While this might sound like it would limit the scope of discussion, however what it manages to do is avoid the broad, generalisations that we often hear about mental illness by pointing out where they do and don't apply to individual stories. There are other people who offer their perspectives on their own illnesses and illnesses in general.
Some of the areas this podcast ventures into are dark and harrowing. Never in a leering or exploitative way but with the honesty mentioned earlier.
If you suffer from mental illness then there may well be something in here that could help you, at the very least you'll hear from people you may identify with, helping confirm that you aren't alone.
If you're in the fortunate position of not suffering from mental illness then it may help to understand those in your life who do.
Well worth a listen.
