Don’t Get Me Started – Project Pitch

Don’t Get Me Started – Pitch

Work in progress

As a sufferer from chronic pain, I find myself going to various doctor appointments and I get told the same thing or I’m not taken seriously. This can get quite frustrating where I’ll either bottle it up or tell the same people which in turn I feel I am annoying them . This podcast will be a way for myself and others have a safe outlet to express our frustrations or concerns, this will help with my mental health (and others)(, n.d.). It is said that recognising your concerns or symptoms can help treatment and keep yourself in control when visiting a mental health practitioner (Frank and Frank, 1993).

  1. Hi Katrina,
    What I get from your idea is that you are going to create podcasts either once or twice a week where you and your friends can vent on your mental and physical health. I believe this can be a great way to address the future as you can do research on why doctors do not take you seriously at times and for others to feel that they are not alone – is a comforting thing. Another great way for the future to be addressed, is that you mention this task could help you with future jobs as you’ll have experience with another medium. How far down the track will you DA go?
    Here, I found a link that you can look into and maybe it can help you with your project as it talks about how mental health affects physical health. –>
    I hope this helps and goodluck!


  2. Hi Katrina,

    For the first part, maybe to perhaps make your podcast a bit more organised than just general venting have you thought about having a general topic for each podcast, or perhaps asking your friends before the recording about the general topics they want to talk about, kind of like an agenda in a way? Since right now the general venting could perhaps get a bit crowded and hard to edit.

    You mentioned you would be using Skype to talk to your friends, have you thought about using discord? I’ve found it’s an easier app to use in regards to setting up and how clear the voice is. But I understand if you have a lot of your friends on Skype which would make that easier but check out this comparison if you don’t!

    I also have a good feeling that uploading the podcast to Soundcloud might be easier than trying to on Spotify since it may need to meet these requirements mentioned in this article!

    I’m interested to see where this DA goes in the future!

  3. Hey Katrina, great idea, as being a complainer myself this is definitely something I would get amongst. A podcast is a great platform for this as it is taking a huge leap now and especially in the future as more people are listening while they are doing things, as finding time to watch or read something is becoming more unlikely.
    I find people need to confine in others to feel okay with how they are feeling but a lot of people find it hard to actually talk about it. Your podcast give people the opportunity to feel like, ‘yes, I’m not the only one’. You could have different topic that you touch on and research about what it is that people are finding hard to do or talk about it. You could get in touch with scholars and independents that people can trust and appreciate their words also.
    Off this podcast you can use other socials to connect with people that feel comfortable speaking through a keyboard. A facebook community where you accept listeners to join and post on the page to speak to other listeners is a great idea for people to connect and chat about mental and physical health.
    For the future of your podcast, it could become a social platform where many feel comfortable and meet others. You could host events that people come to and meet up where they can meet in person in a safe place and enjoy company. You can involved the scholars, psychologists and others to come speak at the events to allow education for sufferers or people that are with sufferers.
    Initially you could create a movement for many people where they not only complain, but they educate, influence and help people.
