I’ve wanted to do an episode on mental health for months. But to be honest I’ve felt really conscious of messing it up. I ended up chatting to the best journalist who writes about it and she suggested that we talk about it.
Emily Reynolds is one of the sharpest writers in the UK, writing for publications like Vice, Wired, The Guardian, Stylist. Incidentally she also writes about mental health. Her book ‘A Beginner’s Guide to Losing Your Mind’ is a very readable take on the realities of all sorts of mental health conditions.
We talk about how MH impacts those who experience it, how people around them should take account and far more.
Also along the way we discuss Emily’s blog post ‘An Incomplete List of All of the Men In The Media Who Have Wronged Me’ which got consumed in the #MeToo movement.
