Behind Blue Lines

Exploring the emotional cost of trauma to our emergency services and those that love them. Hosted by Gareth Davies, an ex-police sergeant certified in the groundbreaking research of Dr Brene Brown into topics including vulnerability, shame, courage and resilience, each episode hears from front line responders about how their unique experience of trauma has affected their mental health and driven disconnection in their personal lives. This podcast is a window beyond the public perception of strength and uniformity, into the personal struggles and complexities that a life of service on the front line creates. Guests are from across the globe and represent the full range of emergency services, demonstrating that whilst our geography may change, the impact of trauma is universal. Common themes arising include depression, PTSD, anxiety and suicide. For more information, visit
