Interview Anna Williamson

Anna Williamson has made a name for herself in a wide array of fields.

First coming to prominence as a TV presenter CITV and ITV, alongside stage performances and musical projects. But now she’s found success as a writer of not one, but two bestselling books on mental health.

Having worked with Childline, the Princes’ trust, and Mind, her charitable credentials are well spoken for. Her first bestseller, 'Breaking Mad: The Insider's Guide to Conquering Anxiety', made the rounds as an insight into anxiety from a first person perspective, detailing her own struggles, as well as good advice for helping protect one’s own mental health.

Now she's released a follow up: 'Breaking Mum and Dad: The Insider's Guide to Parenting Anxiety'. Aimed at helping parents better understand mental health issues, it’s already been very well received by critics.

Matthew Stiles interviewed Anna Williamson to discuss her books and the world of mental health in general: the key to maintaining good mental health, misconceptions people might have, and what might be done to improve the situations of those with mental health problems going forwards.

Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.

10 Minutes More (with Kup & Gurr) | Severe Debt

Over the past few years, students in the UK and around the world have been complaining that their school system is not properly preparing them for the "real world". After all, how can you know algebra but not know how to do your taxes?

One specific example of this money, and more specifically, would you know what to do if you got yourself in severe debt? After all, making sure you have enough money to live is an important part of... living! Furthermore, advertisements for "payday loans" (companies which loan smaller amount of money but with large interest rates, meaning that the recipient of the loan needs to pay back significantly more money than they first received) are more popular than ever before, however many young people do not know the potential dangers of them.

Not knowing what to do to prevent debt - or what to do if you find yourself "in the red" - can cause much bigger issues if it isn't handled properly.

In the latest episode of 10 Minutes More (with Kup & Gurr), George Kup and Callum Gurr invite you to share your opinion on whether you would know what to do if you were in severe debt, following the live vote on TeenScope.

Hyer's Highlights: Future Attitudes

Renowned journalist Jim Pickard‏ tweeted that “future generations may look back at today's laissez-faire approach to children and smartphones the way we now look back at pregnant women and cigarettes in the 1950s”.

It got us thinking at W!ZARD Radio Station that actions which are tolerated today may be viewed unfavourably in decades down the line, in accordance with changing social attitudes.

On his Sunday radio show, Benji Hyer asked listeners which opinions accepted nowadays will be intolerable in coming decades. Michael was one of many to point to the way we use smartphones, however Benji fears more phone technology, and believes that the biggest change in attitudes will instead relate to climate change.

Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.
