Podcasts to Celebrate Pride Month 2019

Pride month 2019 Podbean

Pride Month is celebrated each year in June. All over the world, various events are held during the month as a way of recognizing the influence LGBTQ+ people have had around the world. June was chosen to mark the historic Stonewall Riots that happened in 1969. These riots were prompted by a raid that took place during the early morning, at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village. The LGBT community held a series of demonstrations to protest the raid and calling for the establishment of places that gays and lesbians could go and safely be open about their sexual orientation.

Since that time, much has changed. Yet, along with the celebration, Pride month is an opportunity to peacefully protest and raise awareness of the continued/current issues facing the community.

In honor of Pride Month 2019, Podbean has selected some podcasts representing diverse voices. Some of these podcasts explore intimate coming-out stories and may discuss topics like commitment and relationships, talking to family members, and dealing with bias. Others address viewpoints on gender equality and gay marriage, while a few of the podcasts just have fun and laugh at the latest pop culture trends or explore life.

You can find this topic featured in the Podbean app to listen on the go. If you don’t already have the Podbean app, download it for free in the App Store or Google Play store. It’s the best way to listen and discover new podcasts you’ll love, with recommendations of hot topics plus personalized recommendations based on what you listen to most. You can also listen to these podcasts online here.

Podcasts for Mental Health Awareness Month

Mental Health Awareness blog

May is Mental Health Awareness Month (also known as Mental Health Month), celebrated in the U.S. since 1949. One in five people will be affected by mental illness in their lifetime. Each year this designated month serves as a special way to educate the public and advocate for policies that support people with mental illness and their families.

This year, Mental Health Month continues to focus on the previous year’s theme of #4Mind4Body, but expands to explore the topics of animal companionship, spirituality, humor, work-life balance, recreation and social connections as ways to boost mental health and general wellness. Some of the key messages are:

  • Mental health is essential to everyone’s overall health and wellbeing, and mental illnesses are common and treatable.
  • A healthy lifestyle can help to prevent the onset or worsening of mental health conditions, as well as chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. It can also help people recover from these conditions.
  • Humor, spirituality, recreation, animal companionship, and work-life balance are important for everyone but may be of special importance to people also living with chronic health conditions and those who care for them.

Podcasts offer insightful stories about mental illness, resources for mental health, and outlets for humor, meditation and balance. Many Podbean listeners (and podcasters) share how much podcasts have helped them with mental health struggles. They might use podcasts to help relax before bed or calm anxiety. Hearing others’ stories helps people dealing with mental illness feel less alone. Podcasters have often found an outlet for creativity and a sense of community through podcasting as well.

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we’ve put together a special topic in the Podbean app and have listed some of our top choices below.

If you don’t already have the Podbean app, download it for free in the app store or the Google Play store. It’s the best way to listen and discover new podcasts you’ll love, with recommendations of hot topics plus personalized recommendations based on what you listen to most.
