Whoo, first post! Let’s do this.
Today, I’m going to talk about a podcast that is very near and dear to my heart. It’s a newer podcast – We’re All Mad Here. There are several reasons I really love this podcast, so let’s get into that, shall we?
We’re All Mad Here is a podcast about the history of mental health and the practices around treating disorders such as depression, the history of mental institutions, and more interesting information pertaining to the psychology field.
Rachel is very well spoken and articulate in the delivery of this information, and it shows that she really does her research and cares about this podcast. Her delivery of the information and the inflection in her voice is also both intriguing and soothing – it’s not stressful to listen to, but it’s still going to capture your attention and hold you there.
My particularly favorite episode is episode number nine: Rosemary Made All the Difference. I was amazed at all of the background about Rosemary Kennedy that I didn’t know. People don’t really discuss much of the (mis)treatment of Rosemary. Rachel provides a pretty detailed look into Rosemary’s life, for better and for worse.
We’re All Mad Here has ten five-star ratings/reviews on iTunes. There are also a plethora of reviews from other places, such as Twitter and Facebook, all sporting very positive ratings.
I myself have left a five star rating as well, because I am enamored by this podcast, the topics, and how wonderful Rachel is. Not only is the podcast itself really great, but the interaction with listeners is also frequent and delightful. I honestly cannot say enough good things about this podcast, and that says a lot, because I don’t really find a lot of things this enjoyable.
Keep doing what you’re doing, because it’s working. And it’s working well!
