Your Buddy T-GOB

Your Buddy T-GOB

By Tyler Gobble
I’ve been on a journey through mental illness & grief over the past couple years. This podcast has been my space for working through those struggles. FUTURE BARN is a series of conversations with good people & loved ones in my community about how we try to live our best lives. I ONCE WAS SOMEONE ELSE & OFTEN STILL AM is a series of recordings from my latest book of poems, dealing with my struggle with bipolar disorder & my divorce. Now, I’m back with a new series, chatting every other week with my galpal Beth called OPPOSITES REFRACT. More at yourbuddytgob.com.
