I have just discovered this podcast and I love it. So far I have only heard two episodes, one with one of my favourite actors, Joanna Scanlon, and one just now with Dame Carol. I am in alcohol recovery and get great strength and entertainment from pods and books. I shall now start reading some...Read full review »

As someone in long term recovery I never tire of listening to how it is or was for others touched by addiction. This keeps me on the right path. All of the guests on this series have touched me in one way or another, thank you for such a thoughtful line up of experiences. One day at a time!

This is a must-listen. I have learned so much hearing these stories.

How are you really? Has become my new slogan. I have slowed down my hellos with this to take the time to really see the people in my life. And to let them know they are seen. This isn’t always reciprocated but it has helped to clarify my relationships. Love this show. Loving the focus on addiction.

I can’t tell you the relief I felt listening to Camilla T’s episode with Bryony describing her upbringing in a house with an alcoholic - we’re not alone!! This mini series is so important, addiction is still so misunderstood. Thank you Bryony!!

This is a really great podcast. Bryony is so warm and a great host, she has a cry in just about every episode but that just shows her empathy.

Crystal clear stories told with intelligence, love, humor captures an important need in many places about this insidious brain disease: talking about it across generations too! Getting involved in a community that understands is so healthy. Camilla’s courage as a public person is a strong...Read full review »

I have listened to this for a few months now and think it is an excellent listen. I’ve just heard the recent Nile Rogers episode and it is quite simply brilliant. Briony has all the right instincts of an excellent interviewer and brings out the best in her guests. Highly recommended.

Wow
Addiction series is just brilliant. Everyone should listen!

So glad I discovered this podcast of a relatable discussion on mental health. Catching up on previous episodes, it’s like a conversation with your friend

Ugh honestly, between you and Fern cotton, I just feel like I want to sit with you and have a cuppa and a blether. Hilarious, inspirational, opened minded and honest. What a stupendous human being. Never stop making podcasts please 🙏🏼❤️
le2512 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/11/21
In the early days of this podcast I enjoyed listening. Unfortunately as it has gone on Bryony’s gushing over her guests has grown to intolerable levels. The episode with Fearne Cotton was the last straw for me. The first time she interviewed her it was great - thoughtful and brave. The recent...Read full review »

Well the one with fearne cotton, blooming brilliant, like I was out walking and chatting with my friends, easygoing and so engaging and thought provoking. Just what I needed.
laramoran via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/04/21
I love Bryony, she asks the best questions, always curious but really warm and open. Just finished Fearne’s episode and it was my fave yet! Xxx

I saw Bryony at the happy festival a few years ago. She was so entertaining and I have all her books and enjoy this podcast every week
debbielansbury via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/02/21
This podcast was just fabulous. Like you I’m now a bit in love with him. I grew up in Glasgow at the same time as Douglas and at times I found shuggie Bain a difficult read. I also had my struggles with alcohol and squirmed a bit when reading about how Agnes concealed her drinking. Please keep...Read full review »

The best and most inspiring podcast I have EVER listened to. Thank you Bryony for all you do to give mental health the status it deserves.
Peapea Panda via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 05/26/21
I’ve only just found this podcast I’m experiencing mental health problems I’m one a waiting list to see a psychologist to determine if I have autism or depression it’s very frustrating constantly being told only a phone call is available
👊🤛🤟👌 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/26/21
I was slightly surprised to see the week’s interviewee. Bryony’s questioning was sycophantic claptrap -like an over indulgent mother who can see no wrong in her boy. Much like her writing it epitomises everything that is wrong with the world. It glorifies rich, whiny, narcissistic, professional...Read full review »

Love this podcast and the guests you talk to. It really helps to know that each of us are not alone and everyone goes through tough times with mental health. I’d love it if you asked Miranda Hart to be a guest. She’s just great and also not afraid to be slightly mad in a fun, funny way!

Love Bryony

Had to say how much I enjoyed if that’s the right word the interview with Hunter Bidon. Yes he is lucky to have the wealth and privilege but that does not make his words any less inspiring for all struggling. It was Brutally honest and a great conversation between two people who understand the...Read full review »

Excellent podcast - the Hunter Biden episode was superb and great for anyone in the grips of addiction, in recovery or for those who want to know a bit more on the topic. Thank you. One day at a time. Darren, London.

Love these episodes-feels like I’m listening to friends chat rather than an interview. And I always find a take away message for me!
VicMG1 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/05/21
I love Mad World podcasts and so glad I stumbled across them way back. I’ve now managed to catch up with them all. They bring hope, laughter, honesty, emotion, love and so much more. Bryony is the friend you want to hang out with and the chats are always so welcoming. Keep doing what you are...Read full review »

Such a thought provoking interview with Hunter Biden. I have read articles in the press about him and flattering they were not, however here is a man who suffered much trauma which I cannot even imagine trying to deal with. He was honest, warm and brave and thank you Bryony for a really...Read full review »

Loved loved loved the uplifting interview with Stacey. Both Bryony and Stacey were very entertaining and genuine.
LeggyD via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/30/21
Loved loved loved this interview! So much of your interview related... the bit where you say see you in the morning! I do this EVERY night with my boys but I just say “in the Morning” and if they don’t say if I wait until they do! My poor 15 year old must think I’m mad but he still goes along...Read full review »

She sounds like a great person and I’m sure she’s a funny friend, but I find her interviews far too sycophantic! She kind of drools over her guests which is a little off putting.

I too was moved by the overwhelming love in Shuggie. I read somewhere that the author was on this podcast so listened to it. I wish the host had let Stuart talk more rather than inserting quite so much of herself snd her own opinions (although of course that is her right this being her podcast)....Read full review »

I’m so happy that this podcast is back, I love Bryony and there is something therapeutic about listening to these episodes. The latest one with Charlie Mackesy was amazing, what a wonderfully humble man with such wise words. I hope they do call each other and we need a photo of the swim because...Read full review »

Loved the first episode of the new series! What a nice guy is Charlie

Bryony is just such a refreshing person to listen to. She really is wonderful. Loved the interview with Charlie. It sounded like a real connection was made between both and Charlie sounds just lovely. Thank you Bryony for all of the wonderful things you do, including this podcast. 😍
MissPudPud via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/08/21
I love Mad World and I have been so excited for it to start up again. For me it is a type of therapy. The first episode definitely didn’t disappoint. I listened with tears streaming down my face, what a beautiful soul Charlie Mackesy is. Honest, compassionate, open and what great metaphors-...Read full review »

Hi there, I always love listening to your episodes. Why? Because you show up. The last one with Charlie was just epic as you both were in contact with yourselves and each other. Human to human pure connect is just priceless. Can’t wait for another episode. Enjoy, Darja
zdravanarava via Apple Podcasts · Slovenia · 04/07/21
I love Bryony Gordon and have read two of her books. Love her honesty and humour and how she brings this out in her guests. This has been the perfect listen when out running.
