Frequently Asked Questions
- Are you providing therapy to the people you speak with?
NO WAY. When I'm doing my podcast I bring my knowledge of therapy but in no way are my conversations with people out in the world providing mental health treatment. If someone would like to pursue therapy I am happy to provide them with referrals. I think of my conversations with people more like interviews.
- You're talking to people in bars. Are your interview subjects intoxicated?
I avoid interviewing people who are clearly intoxicated. But since I can't always tell, I also have people sign a release form to use their voice and if I have any doubts I check in with that person by email the following day. I choose to visit bars at quieter times and avoid raucous crowds (for my own sanity). My aim isn't to catalog drunken confessions. I choose to go where people gather socially and talk about life. This includes bars but may also extend to cafes or the streets.
- How is this podcast funded?
TBD. Currently, I volunteer my time and get free help from friends as I seek streams of revenue for the podcast. If you/your business would like to be a sponsor on the podcast, please contact me. Also, if you are part of a larger podcasting network that is looking for a new show, I'd love to hear from you too!
