Who am I?

I am a podcaster , host of "My Life In Poetry Podcast" where I give a fiirst person philosophical, political and/or social cultural interpratation of the world from a person with an anxiety disorder. I am quite introverted and enjoy mentally challenging or more accurately mentally engaging ideas. The podcast listed here have been the most impactful for me.

My Show








What is my podcast about and/or how does it relate to the playlist topic you chose?

On every episode of the podcast looks to provide a new lens at looking at mental health. They are usually insightful or challengiing or at times even both.

What is my podcast playlist about?

My life in Poetry Podcast is a first-person narrative Mental health awareness podcast hosted by Moses Sichach. ​The podcast uses poems from Moses Sichach's early 20s to the present and gives them context through the historical and currenct socio-political Kenyan mental health environment. My Life In Poetry Podcast is for those who are suffering through similar experiences and those who are affected by living with persons struggling with poor mental health and are looking to understand their loved ones better. Sichach, a Kenyan struggling with poor mental health has opted to share his journey so far through poems that he has been writing since 2015 (Hoped to be published as an anthology called FEAR OF DEATH). All this while giving you the context of the poems, his honest role downward spiral, and thoughts about his future to encourage others and himself to keep on living.

Revisionist History is Malcolm Gladwell's journey through the overlooked and the misunderstood. Every episode re-examines something from the past—an event, a person, an idea, even a song—and asks whether we got it right the first time. From Pushkin Industries. Because sometimes the past deserves a second chance.
