a podcast at the intersection of Christianity & mental health.


2 - Storytime (feat. Sarah Fader & Sarah Schuster)

This week: Steve Austin accepts the role of co-host! We're also joined by Sarah Fader (founder and CEO of Stigma Fighters) and Sarah Schuster (editor of Mental Health on The Mighty) to talk about sharing your story and how that helps you and others, especially in the context of mental illness.


Content warnings: in this episode we spend some time talking about suicidal ideation and there's brief mention of an article about being raped.
