Michael Coates, former firefighter and former Soldier, has released the first podcast from a new series documenting stories from members of the military community. Guests include Military Cross winners, athletes, partners of those who have served, high ranking commanders and ‘normal’ veterans who have gained extraordinary experiences. By declassifying stigmas and perceptions the podcast wishes to open up issues around mental fitness and wellbeing, talk in depth around subjects such as post traumatic growth and delve into human development on a micro level. The longterm vision is to provide hope, guidance, support and help for individuals who are suffering from both mental and physical illness or injury.

The podcast is free to download and can be accessed by clicking here.
