This is our first podcast! We were so excited to record it that we had a rap battle. That’s not all we did, though.

We also talked about Belle Gibson, and what it means when the media speculates about mental illness. Then we answered your listener questions in our Anxiety Aunts segment – things like, what are the most helpful things I can say to my anxious friend? and, how do I manage the small decisions?
