Episode 1: Me and My Dad

In this episode, I interview my father who suffers from several mental illnesses and has been hospitalized in a mental institution. We talk about the disorders he struggles with and how they have affected him in various aspects and times in is life, hospitalization, affects on our family, and stigma and misconceptions. My dad’s hospitalization was one of the reasons I decided to make this podcast, so this episode is a (very long) introduction to this series.
