Hey guys, I'm Danny Whittaker. A former normal functioning member of society turned nervous wreck... turned podcaster.

Back in the summer of 2012, during a perfect storm of bankruptcy, health issues, relationship problems, and drug abuse, I had what can only be described as a full-blown nervous breakdown.

What followed was a four year roller coaster of extreme anxiety, depression, agoraphobia, panic attacks, depersonalization and eventually suicidal ideation.

In my desperation to recover I tried every bullshit technique, quick fix solution, herbal remedy, and pseudoscience miracle cure under the sun. But what eventually pulled me back from the brink was a good ol’ fashioned cocktail of education, therapy, self-reflection, and healthy living.

Inspired by my experience, in September 2016, I launched "My Own Worst Enemy". A podcast where I interview world class academics, authors and speakers on various aspects of psychology, philosophy and mental health with the goal of discovering the truth about what causes and alleviates human suffering.

As of June 2018 I've produced 57 episodes on everything from depression and PTSD, to magic mushrooms and porn addiction, and bagged some truly awesome guests along the way including the likes of CBT icon David Burns, and NYT Bestselling author Johann Hari.

I currently have just over 140,000 streams between SoundCloud and YouTube. Hardly phenomenal, I know, but I think it shows potential, and with your help, I’d like to take the show to the next level:

Bigger guests, more episodes more often, YouTube content, video tutorials, blog posts, product reviews, and of course, exclusive content for you guys!
