Listening Dog Media are to produce a series of short programmes for Fix Radio in 2021. The series will be presented by Ruck It’s Kyran Bracken and Nick Easter and will focus on male mental health.
Funded by the Audio Content Fund, Ruck It! Let’s Talk will feature a series of interviews with some of the UK’s biggest sports stars discussing their experiences with mental health problems. The series will air during Mental Health Awareness Week (w/c 18th May 2021), with every day focusing on a different sports star. The interviews will be broken up across the day, featuring across different shows on the Fix Radio schedule.
Ruck It’s Kyran Bracken has himself spoken openly about his battles with OCD during his playing career, describing on the series how his obsession around needing to get enough sleep every night began to make him ill.
Fix Radio is the UK’s radio station for the construction industry, making this the perfect station for the series. Statistics from the Men’s Health Forum states that 78% of all suicides are men, with suicide being the biggest killer of men under the age of 35.
Guests for the series will be announced in the new year.
