Pop Psych 101
Mike hails from Kansas City, Missouri; Kansas City is in Missouri, not Kansas, for the confused reading this. CHIEFS!
Mike is working to spread awareness and bust the stigma of mental health issues. He wants to normalize it so that at some point we can speak about it the same way we would talk about a broken leg.
He’s been a creative person his entire life and began adding to his portfolio when he was 13 years old.
He now works from the speed of pedal-to-the-medal to huge downswings where it’s difficult to get up or do anything.
His wife is always there to encourage him and so is his sister, but there are also times when he needs to give in to the disease and tuck away in the quiet.
Mike and his podcast co-host, Ryan, a therapist, explore the topic of mental health through movies and shows. They share ideas and reviews in an entertaining way and joke that their show has one therapist, one advocate and 2 perspectives.
