Episode 74 in which Hugh Fort, Rachel Nemeth and Tom Canning join the conversation as part of World Mental Health Day with not one, but two special guest interviews. First in the hot seat is Jordan Gooding, a qualified therapist from the Reading Councellors, a new Community Interest Company (CIC) serving the town. Second up is James Carter, a board member at Reading FC Community Trust and Men's Mental Health Advocate with the NHS. There are of course all the usual features plus, why you all need to head back to school for detention. Let prattle commence! If you like our new intro music, it's Real Life by Reading's own Twin Sun. More on them here.
