Oct 20th, 2020 by Unravelling Science Podcast
Brian Pennie is my guest on the podcast this week. He talks about growing up surrounded by drug and alcohol abuse, how this lead him down a road of chronic heroin addiction and crippling anxiety, how he overcame these issues and where he is today, a PhD researcher in the Trinity Institute of Neuroscience. Brian's research now focuses on using interventions such as mindfulness to combat substance misuse in adults.
We also chat about the importance of being bold in asking for advice, the importance of having balance in your life and how he views the world with a new 'spark' now.
