Episode 228: Mental Health, Gaming & Milkshake IPA

This week we’re talking about mental health with Kieran and Justin from Critical Cause. They talk about what lead them to starting this yearly fundraising (game-streaming) event, that contributes to their Winnipeg Foundation fund in support of mental health research and initiatives. We’re drinking the Soothsayer Milkshake IPA from Parallel 49 in Vancouver.

The fourth-annual Critical Cause starts this Saturday, April 28 at noon, and runs for 24 hours. If you’re interested in learning more or want to donate to the fund, head to criticalcause.org.
