A Few Screws Loose: The Podcast

Health & Wellness Podcasts >

Dan and Paul are both men of color who suffer from, and openly talk about their mental illnesses. The goal of this podcast is to help further destigmatize mental illness in minority communities where we’re traditionally taught to suffer in silence. We have suffered in silence for far too long. It’s our hope that listeners walk away knowing that it is ok to talk about it, it’s ok to feel, it’s ok to seek help, and most importantly you’re not alone. Join us bi-weekly as we discuss our experiences, tips, and have conversations with occasional guests about all things mental health related.

Recorded on New Year's Eve, Dan and Paul discuss substance abuse... eventually. Dan shares how he was an alcoholic from the age of 13 until about 18 sharing some drunk stories that we can now look back at with our brand of twisted humor. We also discuss addiction, how addicts are treated by medical professionals, and if mandatory rehab is effective. Though this is a serious topic, it's one of our more loose shows... no pun intended.

In episode 3 we unpack a lot! Paul explains how people routinely misuse the term antisocial, which is actually a form of sociopathy closely related to psychopathy.
