In episode 162 of The Just Checking In Podcast we checked in with journalist Thomas Mackintosh.
Thomas currently works for BBC London and fronted the recently published documentary ‘Who Stole Tamara Ecclestone’s Diamonds?’, which focused on the diamond heist of the home of daughter of former Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone, Tamara Ecclestone and who was behind it.
In this episode we discuss how Thomas broke into the journalism industry and the barriers he had to overcome, the stress that comes from covering the crime stories he does and the documentary about Tamara Ecclestone’s diamond heist.
For Thomas’s mental health, we talk about the isolation and loneliness that living in London can bring about in people, therapy he has accessed in the past because of issues he’s had in previous relationships and how he’s now recovered and in a great place with a supportive partner and wider support network.
As always, #itsokaytovent
