Ep 5 - "Language Timothy"
In this show Max Duddles examines society's attitude to the language surrounding mental illness and what can be done to change it. He has a brief etymological journey into the origins of the words crazy, insane and psycho, listens carefully to Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump and David Cameron and concludes that mental illness is not the problem, but our use of language to describe it is. With special thanks to the #sicknotsad campaign, @discombobBrain and @designdforlife and in memory of the late, great, Ronnie Corbett. Musical credits, as always, to the wonderful Olive Musique.

Ep 4 - From Little Acorns
Recently I was privileged to meet three people who had survived the worst that mental illness had thrown at them and come out the other side. Brave men who had managed to battle their way out of their homes and had found help, support and like-minded people at a gardening project in Chelmsley Wood. This is the story of Gary, James and Jason who, with the help and support of Sarah Gill and her wonderful team at Gro-Organic, are turning their lives around, one seed at a time. Musical credits and our thanks to Olive Musique.

Ep 3 - How Mental Illness Won The War
This time we wonder if the depression suffered by both Winston Churchill and John Curtin helped win the war and, in Australia's case, usher in wide-ranging progressive social reform. We also ask what it would be like if, like Churchill and Curtin, a tailored support structure was built around everyone suffering from a mental illness.

Episode 2 - Memory Lane
In this episode we ask "did you do it?" Max gets some links, which make him happy. We look at some exciting developments in schizophrenia and PTSD research. Then it's off down Memory Lane as we examine what dementia really is and what the future holds for its treatment.....how do you pronounce Hogewey?

Episode 1 - Welcome
Here at The 1 in 4 we believe that there should be no stigma attached to mental illness. Whether an illness affects your heart, your liver or your brain, it's still just an illness, which can be talked about openly and honestly. In our first show, we examine: David Cameron's "assault on poverty" and his promise to provide £1bn of funding for mental health services. Proposals to change the rules which govern how criminal trials involving mentally unwell defendants are conducted. The opening of Court of Protection hearings to the public - alongside proposals to give anonymity to defendants in rape trials. Finally, we wonder what Christopher Eccleston and Aardman Animations are doing with an orange.
