  • Great guests, lackluster host

    This podcast provides a wealth of information and resources for those of us struggling with OCD. Stu has great guests and he seems like a really nice person and I appreciate all the work he puts into the podcast. However, I find his interviews painful and really difficult to listen to. I wish he would engage with what the guests are saying in a more meaningful way.

  • Invaluable podcast for anyone with OCD

    I've been listening to this podcast know for quite a few years and always love coming back to it to hear stories from those with OCD, therapists and others. It's a great way to bolster things you may have learned through therapy, personal experience of the condition and also to discover new insights and ideas about OCD. Fantastic interviewer, who always creates a genuine discussion and a really open atmosphere for sharing knowledge and experiences.
