Great podcast -- more episodes please!

I've been subscribed to this podcast for the last year and absolutely adore it. My favorite one is the one with Mandy Stevens, I've listened to it about three 8 times because it is so full of insight and condensed with information. I've also particularly enjoyed the episode with Stephen Fry and Prince Harry. Bryony Gordon is a perfect host -- kind, funny and empathetic given her own struggles with OCD. I hope this podcast continues and produces more episodes. I would definitely like to hear more episodes (with or without celebrities) and broaden the scope to hear more about, for example, the eight different kinds of schizophrenia, dissociative disorder, hallucinations associated with dementia or Parkinson’s disease, etc. I've also really enjoyed hearing from British experts and celebrities, but Bryony could also connect with American ones as well! Or anyone from any country for that matter. Thanks to Bryony, guests, and everyone involved with this production to fighting stigma and helping people!

Very nurturing podcast.
