Aug 13, 2019 Season 1 Episode 1
Silke Ahrens & Andrew McAllister

In this first episode of the series Andrew and Silke do their utmost to introduce themselves and why they decided to host this podcast, all whilst keeping the rambling at bay. They explore the different definitions of disease/ mental disorders and dive into why there is a stigma attached to being mentally unwell, particularly if you are in a position of leadership. We find out about personal experience and the difference between society`s expectations of a proper Australian bloke versus a German career woman and the perceived taboos that come with the territory. 

Disclaimer: Andrew and Silke are not mental health professionals, but they do know how to survive a high pressure environment and enjoy life - most of the time. This podcast is designed to open up the conversation around mental health and share experience rather than give advise.
