The Wellbeing Project by The PodBarber

Conversation Is The Cure

We’re ‘Championing the Chat’ for greater positivity and better mental health & wellbeing. The award-winning PodBarber podcast is part of the current movement to get people to talk. It was founded and is run by Mick Phipps and Howie Fiddy, who have gained much training and experience through the likes of Samaritans, MHFA, and Lions Collective. We’ve remastered our collective skills to create an inspiring show that helps uncover the power of conversation as the bedrock for healing within. The world of health and beauty is at the forefront of this movement. As a barber of some 20+ years, Mickey brings the therapy and positivity he provides around his chair into the studio to showcase how we can support society simply by talking and listening. With each podcast meticulously created by seasoned radio producer Howie, we provide a unique listening experience that will get under your skin. Guests from every walk of life share their stories; their tribulations and their triumphs, peppered with deep and insightful reflections and observations from our host, not to mention a few laughs and smiles along the way. Here at The PodBarber HQ, when we’re trying to describe the potency of this new form of reality entertainment, all we say is: Just Listen! You’ll be glad you did.
