This podcast discusses suicide in a graphic manner and may be disturbing to some listeners.
In 2002, colleague and friend Emma Payne’s husband Barry died by suicide. As she struggled to make sense of things, I gave Emma a mini-disc recorder and suggested that, like keeping a journal, just talking into the recorder might be helpful.
15 years later, Emma listened to the recordings for the first time and we started to work together on what would become a single episode podcast called The 20 Minute Walk.
Originally released in 2017, the podcast has been remastered and re-released in 2022 to mark the 20th anniversary of Barry’s death.
