Acceptable Madness

By Scott McKinney

Welcome to Acceptable Madness! My name is Scott McKinney and I have no problem admitting that I struggle with depression, and you know what? That's okay. I like using my words as an emotional outlet to talk through whatever struggles I'm having. I hope that I can use my experiences and words to help you too in this judgement-free zone. Enjoy the show and I hope you leave happier than you were when you got here.
