Mailbag #3: More on Bipolar and the Fascinating Topic of Epigenetics
Mar 16, 2019 Season 2 Episode 3
Oliver Turnbull and Dr. Paul Keedwell
We find bipolar and epigenetic questions in our mailbag
Show Notes

Our sack continues to bulge! In this week's rummage, we talk a bit more about bipolar and jam about epigenetics, which is a wide topic, but does have some relevance in the theories of why some mental illnesses are thought to have a genetic component. It's a pretty technical subject but super interesting. (everything needs to have a "super" prefix these days, right?)

This is "Why the long face?" in which we lift the lid on depression in a sometimes lighthearted and always non-judgemental way.

It is a conversation between two old friends, usually over a drink or two.

Paul has been a psychiatrist for 20 years and has done years of research into mood disorders and Oliver is a business consultant who has dealt with a lot of depression and its consequences in the workplace.

Cheers!
