Episode Description

I had the great pleasure to talk with Demetrius Holt aka Hellspawn Cosplay. About the world of Black Costume Play (Cosplay) and representation in the Nerd and Geek or Blerd and Bleek space as a factor in our mental health. We also talk about the challenges and reality in the time of COVID-19 on the male body image and being a father. As always we also discuss the Myth and Reality of mental health, and the team that any hero needs to be out in the world making a difference. Because Demetrius has the power, and so do you.

Untying Knots: Minds and Souls Untethered

Untying Knots: Minds and Souls Untethered

New Shows Available every other week on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel

A knot is a focus point in a rope. Multiple knots can shorten the length of rope. A knot can disrupt how a rope coils or uncoils. A knot can also be a place to provide a grip for climbing and holding something in place.

Our lives can be full of knots that can be either helpful or unhelpful. The Untying Knots podcast is here to stimulate listeners by untying knots that hamper our understanding around mental health issues, and helping to find the knots that are there to help one climb or stop their fall.

We focus on sharing information, education about mental health, psychotherapy and the practice of it from a Black-Indigenous-Person-of-Color lens. We interview people who work in the field of mental health. We discuss myths and realities about the field, and we talk with creatives on how mental health impacts the challenges they face, how they overcome these challenges, and how it helps them live an authentic empowered life.
