He said the current COVID-19 virtual meeting setup has helped the show reach experts and listeners since June 2020.

“Everyone goes through something at some point on the mental health spectrum. It’s okay to not be okay. You’re not alone in the fight. There’s resources out there. I think podcasting is a great platform just due to the fact you can get people on (easily) with this virtual world that we’re living in,” said Perez.
