I don't normally fire off links in groups but I'm giving away a PS4 system and figured some might be interested.

Today on the podcast I spoke to +Mike Reynolds about our struggles with mental illness for #BellLetsTalk day. We also talked about Eugenie Bouchard being asked to give the Aussie Open crowd a twirl and discuss how we've both redefined the way we look at fatherhood in the media.
