Bryony Gordon launches new Mad World podcast special with Gabor Maté
For the second year in a row, we are delighted that Forward Trust Ambassador Bryony Gordon has dedicated a very special episode of her award-winning Mad World Podcast to the topic of addiction, in honour of Addiction Awareness Week 2022.
This year, she spoke to Gabor Maté, a doctor and expert in addiction, stress and childhood development. Gabor joins Bryony to talk about the importance of compassion, and how he thinks that in 150 years we'll look back in horror that we've been separating the mind and the body in healthcare. His book, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts, was a great comfort to Bryony while she was getting sober.
Bryony has also dedicated her latest column in the newspaper The Telepgraph to the issue of addiction, addressing how misunderstood it still is and the stigma that still surrounds it.
