Music Therapy is a mental health podcast for musicians and music fans. Musician and licensed therapist Jessica Risker interviews musicians and therapists to explore issues around mental health, creativity, and music careers. People don’t often talk about the most vulnerable part of their lives - the emotional spaces between the lines of the wikipedia entry. In a carefully curated world of social media, it’s nice to hear what other musicians actually have going on beneath the surface. The Music Therapy podcast looks beyond the bullet points of a music career and explores how people really think, feel, and act when they’re struggling and growing creatively. Refreshingly relatable, the podcast focuses a magnifying glass on musicians’ anxiety about shortcomings in their career, creative processes, and mental health struggles.
