Our first show in ages. We don’t talk about any of James’ stuff, but we do talk about entropy, and using Dan Harmon as a barometer for how to live your life.

Nick is way out of practice and asleep at the wheel, so we’ll be back to full shownotes next time!

#125 – Special Episode: Recorded at Twittercomic2016 – Another Conversation About Mental Health Treatment

In this very special episode, recorded on the 15th October, 2016 at the Twittercomic2016 event, James talks to Timothy Swann, Beth and George Beedham and David Wynne about mental health and the NHS.

Some zany stuff is going on with the audio in this episode; I think it’s fair to say that it is totally borkaborked like the Swedish Chef. There’s a lot of weird echoing that I’ve no idea where it came from and it comes and goes, I promise. But the conversation feels vital enough that it’s worth sharing and listening to, at least until we get the chance to have it again with everyone.

In this very special episode, recorded on the 15th October, 2016 at the Twittercomic2016 event, James talks to Beth and George Beedham about their personal experiences with mental illness and mental healthcare.

This was recorded in a busy house during an event, so the sound quality is variable, but it’s a great conversation.
