Any Questions Podcast

any questions podcast logoWHY THIS PODCAST AND WHY THESE TOPICS?

We choose to highlight themes that aren't usually talked about in the wellness presentations that we deliver on campus. That's because a lot of wellness topics, and the topics we discuss in this podcast, may be a bit more nuanced, complex, or are sometimes difficult discussing in a short presentation or a group setting.

While they may be personal, complex, or sometimes uncomfortable, we get asked these questions and want to create a platform where we can explore them in an accessible way for students. So pop in your ear buds on your walk to class and get a sense of what we get asked and what we have to say on Any Questions?
