Hello and welcome to the final episode of season 2! To the hundreds of you who are continuing to download and listen to the podcast week in week out, you have no idea how much your continued support of this podcast means and we’re so, so grateful to you for your time and ears each week.
We’ve done almost 20 episodes in Season 2, covered such a broad range of topics around men’s mental health including grief, depression, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, anxiety, suicide, suicide ideation and loads more. We’ve been completely blessed to have 19 unbelievable guests including Alastair Campbell, Joe Bryan, Simon Thomas, Luke Tyburski, Denny Solomona, Luke Chadwick, James Sutliff and more.
Massive thank you to our partners in previous episodes in Cornerstone, but thank you to the continued support of LooseHeadz, who will be continuing to sponsor in Season 3 too… yes, you heard that right, a SEASON 3 with some very, very, very interesting and exciting new guests baring all to explore men’s mental health even further.
But, I want to finish this season with a remarkable, remarkable man. Ben Smith, who was featured on BBC3 Amazing Humans, is the man who ran 401 marathons in 401 days… and he’s on the show today to tell his story.
There isn’t much more of an intro needed actually… so, Ben Smith, welcome to The Rut. As always, please leave all judgement at the door.
