Behind the Mind
Episode 12 with NFL O-Lineman Joe Barksdale
On episode 12 of Behind the Mind, former NFL Offensive-Lineman Joe Barksdale joined the show to discuss his life-long struggle with depression.
Joe and I had an awesome conversation and I really enjoyed learning about his story. He really is a complex person with a very insightful mind. He is another shining example that we all go through something, no matter how successful we appear on the surface. I did not expect Kobe Bryant to come up in this episode, but Joe brought up meeting him in 2018, and how Kobe influenced him to stop playing football and follow his passion for making music. Joe has already released an album and says that music has changed his life. Joe will soon be launching his own mental health blog to contribute to the conversation about mental health.
Hope you enjoy!
