#53 - Depression and Anxiety in Your Early 20's - Alex Manzi, Host of The Dreamer's Disease

Firstly, Alex Manzi is a stand-up bloke who is going to be big big news. 

Secondly our podcasts, The Inspiration Space and The Dreamers Disease, share a lot of values and have run down very similar time frames.  

Thirdly Alex and I both struggled with mental health in our 20’s and share some very similar thoughts on the topic.

And lastly, it’s the first time I’ve done a podcast when we have both been interviewing each other.  Which was a fantastic experience.  This episode was a little bit longer but it’s because we really delve into each other’s backgrounds and try and get to the bottom of some very common thoughts and mental paradigms of people in their mid 20’s.
