Episode 74: Raise MentalHealthError
Mar 28, 2016 @ 11:16:01

The /Dev/Hell podcast, hosted by PHP community members Chris Hartjes and Ed Finkler, has posted its latest episode: Episode #74 - Raise MentalHealthError.

In this episode we were extremely lucky to get Kenneth Reitz on the show to discuss his experiences when he had a mental health event that resulted in a stay in the hospital and some major life changes as a result.

Normally we’re a comedy podcast that focusses on technology, but issues surrounding mental health are very important to us. We’re extremely grateful that Kenneth came on and was very open about what happened to him. We hope you enjoy what was a great, open, freewheeling discussion about how the symptoms of some mental illnesses appear beneficial from the outside.

You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page audio player or by downloading the mp3 directly. If you enjoy the show be sure to subscribe to their feed too and get this and more great shows as they're released.

Paul Reinheimer and Gemma Anible came on (and even did video via Skype so they could tell when we were getting bored) and talked about how WonderNetworks got started, Paul and Gemma’s preferred development style and Paul seemed determined (as he always is) to tweak Chris.

The /Dev/Hell podcast, hosted by PHP community members Ed Finkler and Chris Hartjes has posted their latest episode: Episode #70: Anti-Canuckite Leanings.

During the discussions for topics for this episode, Chris went to the bathroom for some quiet time. When he came back Ed had asked dedicated grumpy-Canadian hater Amanda Folson to join this episode to talk a bit about the life of a developer evangelist, Greg LeMonde, the Battle for PHP CoC, how Composer saved PHP, and CodeMash.

Along the way Amanda and Ed ganged up on Chris showing their hatred for their peace-loving neighbours north of the 49th parallel and during the aftershow drove him away with talk about audio recording equipment.
