PODCAST SPECIAL
21st CENTURY PRESSURE

We’re thinking about the turbulence of existence in the 21st century. With more consciousness, longer living, rising populations; immersive technologies; competition for resources and disconnect between the fantasy of the lives we feel we want with the reality of being who we are – how do we cope?

In this podcast special, Chris Thorpe-Tracey draws on some of Richard Freeman’s past interviews with extraordinary people at the coalface of change – exploring the impact of modern life on the way we look after ourselves and the hope for a less stressful vision for what comes next.

In this podcast you’ll hear from:

Fiona Broadfoot – campaigner, activist, former prostitute and founder of The Build A Girl Project

The Last Skeptik – producer, DJ, songwriter

SK Shlomo – beatboxer, producer, singer-songwriter and mental health campaigner

Jodie McNally – Northern Hub Leader for the EY Foundation; Northern Women Power List award-winner 2018

Anna Passey – actress; ‘Sienna Blake’ in Channel 4’s Hollyoaks

Topics covered include:

Mental illness
Gender
Music
Grooming
Exploitation
Young people
Social media
Geographical inequality
Recovery and support
Addiction
Suicide
Asking for help
Connections
Employment
Self-care
Creativity

Potential triggers: none of the topics are discussed in graphic detail, but there are personal reflections on mental illness and depression as well as broader insights on social exclusion/exploitation.
