Mad Conversations

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts Sounder Castbox Spotify

Mad Conversations is a podcast about contemporary issues affecting the mad community. Each episode features a casual conversation between people who have lived experience of mental distress / illness, about key issues affecting their day to day lives.

Mad Conversations is a @madcovid production which will continue and build on the conversations and personal testimonies featured in our Mad Covid Diaries and Voices projects. Through the podcast we will take a broader approach, beyond COVID19, featuring discussions on other contemporary issues including intersectionality, race, diagnosis, sexuality, politics and much more. Our aim is the same as it’s always been: to centre the voices and experiences of those who have not been heard.

If you have any suggestions for topics or guests you’d like to hear, or if you would like to be a guest on the podcast, let us know by sending an email to
