About Us

Alan and Ben have been friends since they were four. When they were twelve, Ben found out that Alan lived with anxiety. A few years later Alan found out the same about Ben's OCD.So they went from just talking about football, to talking about their lives - their real lives - therapy, medication, CBT tactics, the lot. Though obviously they still talked about football.And it helped, it really helped. So they've started a podcast. They hope that more people (especially men) hearing other people (especially men) talk about mental health will help to change the stigma that's still out there, and help more people to look for solutions rather than hide their problems away.They can't promise there won't be football references, but they can promise honesty, empathy and real, lived advice.

Misconceptions of OCD

We don't really want to talk about Health Anxiety

EIf you've experienced heightened levels of anxiety through thinking about your health, or that of someone you care about, you'll know why we're reluctant to talk about it. It's hard to handle and it can ruin your week. Unfortunately though, we started a podcast with a mission to talk about all aspects of anxiety and OCD, so we've got no choice. Hope you enjoy the episode. We didn't.
