PODCAST SPECIAL // 21st CENTURY PRESSURE
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:
Recovery and support
Asking for help
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.
