Episode 136 - Alan Scherer

Episode description

Peter and Bryan venture outside the studio, first to Peter’s house and then to Bryan’s car, to make some HWYRT magic. Peter has a big announcement about his run streak and Bryan offers his sage advice. Bryan also impresses Peter with his amazing return to athletics. Then, they welcome November Project Boston tribe member and photographer Alan Scherer to discuss a more serious topic that has been in the news: suicide. Alan shares his struggles with mental illness and how he worked to recover after hitting his personal rock bottom. They discuss how hearing about other suicides can become a trigger for those who have a history of depression. Finally, Alan shares how he has found support and inspiration through the running community and through his photography, and how he hopes to use his experiences to help others who are trying to find their way to health.
