Man the Making
This is the epitome of a podcast with a purpose. It was started by 21 year old AI/Robotics student Rokas Stasiulaitis to help people especially youth better manage depression, confusion and finding meaning and purpose. Rokas struggled with mental and familial issues himself and noticed a trend of mental health deterioration in his peers. After being mentored by former Monk and Changemaker Rajan Shankara, they created the Man in the Making Podcast. Named as a reference to a journey of self improvement and becoming a better person.
They engage in deep discussions about big questions that are not discussed enough in society, especially among the youth including topics like self realisation, the stages of development, depression, the subconscious, love, death, the ego, happiness and self love. It is incredible to see Rajan, who left the world at 19 to become a monk, now mentoring 21 year old Rokas as well as countless youth globally. I guess it saves Rokas from having to become a monk to understand himself!
After delving in to the mind, editing some of Hinduism’s oldest scripts and helping over 1000 people, Rajan brings an incredible amount of life wisdom. Yet he remains humble and curious, so it’s interesting to witness his growth as well. Rokas is softly spoken, intensely observant and strong willed. Rajan is rational but free thinking, more extroverted and has a unique ability to express himself and ask the right questions so it’s an interesting dynamic. Kevin has been on a few episodes including one where we discuss overcoming hardship, consciousness, mental health and critical thinking. Sometimes the conversations are between Rokas and Rajan and other times they bring in guests.
Russel is a former comedian and celebrity who has become an activist for critical thinking and drawing attention to important societal issues. He has sort of become the voice of reason reflecting the criticisms and concerns of society with incredible articulation. His life experience overcoming drug addiction and the pitfalls of fame and celebrity place him in a unique position to question the media driven society we live in. He has an inherently curious mind, a freedom of expression and the ability to connect concepts and disciplines that others don’t. His talks feature a range of thought leaders from various disciplines as well as many of his own coherently impassioned ramblings.
Zach Bush Talks
Zach Bush MD is a physician specializing in internal medicine, endocrinology and hospice care.

The Chronic Comeback
Phil Hadfield interviews inspiring people who have made near impossible comebacks from chronic illnesses. On his podcasts he shares the stories of people with debilitating chronic illnesses like MS, lupus, chronic fatigue, lyme disease, SIBO and cystic fibrosis.
Phil has dealt with chronic health issues for the last 5-10 years and is personally dealing with both the mental and physical difficulties associated with having a chronic condition. He tells their inspirational stories of recovery, resilience and life transformation. It’s an empowering, insightful delve in to the power of the human spirit. There are so many negative stories about chronic health issues so it is inspiring to see more positive stories. It is a ray of hope and possibility amidst the gloom.
The Eczema Podcast
Abby Lai struggled with severe chronic eczema from birth and like Kevin had been failed by the typical treatment regime of immune suppressants. She healed herself by cutting out allergens, healing the gut and rebalancing the skin. Abby then founded her own skincare company Eczema Conquerors to help others through the knowledge she gained. She is now also a registered holistic nutritionist and the founder of the Eczema Podcast.
On this show they delve deeply into areas that are typically not discussed enough by the medical community including the role of diet, steroids, topical steroid withdrawal, mental health and skin barrier repair. It is such an inspiration to see someone take their greatest difficulty, change their life and go on to help others do the same. Especially when the problem is so difficult to solve as there are so many variables effecting the skin.
