Sea Change Radio

These dark and trou­bling times have left very few of us stress and anx­i­ety free. So we thought we’d check in with an expert on ger­mo­pho­bia and anx­i­ety. No, our guest this week on Sea Change Radio is not a psy­chol­o­gist. He is an envi­ron­men­tal jour­nal­ist, writer for Mongabay, and long-time friend of the show, Jere­my Hance. Hance has strug­gled with men­tal ill­ness and anx­i­ety for decades, and recent­ly wrote a book doc­u­ment­ing his tra­vails. Bag­gage: Con­fes­sions of a Glo­be­trot­ting Hypochon­dri­ac,” is brave, thought­ful and often quite hilar­i­ous. Our dis­cus­sion with Hance may just give you a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive the next time you read an inves­tiga­tive piece that takes place in some exot­ic locale. Per­haps it will also lend per­spec­tive as we all strug­gle with our own neg­a­tive thoughts and uneasiness.
