Perpetually Pensive< Back to Shortlist

The Perpetually Pensive podcast aims to promote healthy messages regarding mental and physical health to a wide demographic and audience.

The hosts have interviewed a number of local musicians including Marc Rigney and Maya Goldblum who performed songs and talked about their creative process, gave tips for young people to get started and how music has impacted their life.

The pair have also interviewed Davy Hutton who is a Consultant Psychotherapist with extensive experience in working with anxiety, depression, complex trauma and clinical supervision. It was a great way to reach a vast demographic and not only provide entertainment but also a valuable message.

Mindfulness, Psychology, nutrition, physical exercise, self awareness, consistency and collaboration are all subjects Perpetually Pensive cover in their podcast with clear objectivity while simultaneously having respect towards subjectivity and the ability to comprise and be fair.
