‘Age of Anxiety’ ChatCast, a production of Our Chatham and the Chatham News + Record, launches today

The first season of the new podcast series by Chatham News + Record and Our Chatham, the “ChatCast,” comes out today. You can find it online or through various streaming services. 

In Chatham County, mental health isn’t typically a dinner table topic. But the creators of the ChatCast are hoping to change that to deal with an issue that is so vital to Chatham County and beyond, as data suggests mental illness – as well as suicide – are only getting more prevalent. News + Record Reporter Zachary Horner and Our Chatham Reporter Adrianne Cleven have interviewed more than 30 people in and around Chatham County — including educators, mental health professionals, teenagers and parents — to provide insight on the topic. The first season of the podcast, “Age of Anxiety,” discusses mental health topics throughout the county of Chatham.
