EP.118 - MALCOLM GLADWELL

Adam talks with Canadian author and journalist Malcolm Gladwell

Part of the conversation with Malcolm focusses on how surprising circumstantial factors may prevent some people from acting on suicidal impulses. If you find yourself considering taking your own life, THE SAMARITANS are a source of support for people when they feel hopeless. Please give them a call.

Thanks to Séamus Murphy-Mitchell for production support and to Matt Lamont for additional editing.

A note about Comments

Hello Podcats and Blog friends,

I wanted to let you know that comments have been disabled on the blog and the app for the time being. This is not because of anyone posting anything abusive or anything like that, but just because I seldom get round to moderating the stuff that comes in as promptly as I should, and rather than irritate people who don’t understand why their comment hasn’t been posted, I think it’s easier if I just switch them off. Sorry about that, but time is scarce and I’m disappointed to discover I can’t do everything! And if you’re one of the people who submitted a comment and it hasn’t been posted - sincere apologies.

Best wishes

Adam
