How Did We Get Here? is a question most of us have asked at least once in the past couple of years.
With unprecedented political upheaval, the campaign to defeat racism, and the global pandemic, our world has changed forever.
In their hugely popular series, Strictly presenter Claudia Winkleman and clinical psychologist professor Tanya Byron concentrate on issues as they are faced by individuals rather than the population as a whole. But in doing so, they touch on the concerns of many people who might be going through something similar.
Each episode of the British Podcast Award-nominated series is a conversation with a real person who is feeling stuck in an area of their life.
Topics range from anxiety, phobias and identity to PTSD, grief, sexuality and unexpected, life-changing events – no matter the subject, the themes of loss, guilt, love and forgiveness are universal. In each of the 12 episodes in the third series, Winkleman listens to the conversation to discover how the professor unlocks the story behind each issue, and asks questions about how Byron guides the guests forward to a place of clarity.
Among the unsung heroes we hear from is a frontline worker involved in the aftermath of the 7/7 bombings.
This is not the first time Radio 2 presenter Winkleman and Byron have teamed up to help people with their struggles.
First airing in 2005 on BBC Three, The House Of Tiny Tearaways helped parents turn around their family lives. They checked in to the House with their children for six days of 24-hour observation and parenting support.
Since then, the pair have become close friends, creating the concept of this podcast together.
