The Forever Conversations: What sort of person do you want to be like in 10 years time?

The Forever Conversations is our series of conversations exploring mental health issues and some of the struggles that we face whilst growing up. The Forever Conversations are presented in partnership with John Green’s new book, “Turtles All The Way Down”.

John Green (the author of books including ‘Looking For Alaska’, ‘Paper Towns’ and ‘The Fault In Our Stars’) has released a new book, “Turtles All The Way Down”. The book centres around 16-year-old Aza Holmes who is pursuing the mystery of a fugitive billionaire, whilst living with multiple anxiety disorders.

We don’t have to “imagine” a world where students have anxiety issues – in 2017, a study by UCL showed that 1 in 4 teenage girls reported symptoms of depression. Also, the number of students under the age of 9 who are seeing therapists for reasons such as anxiety, bullying and depression have increased by 31% over the…

Hyer's Highlights: Trump's First Year

As hard as it may be to believe, it has been almost whole year since President Donald Trump’s inauguration on 20th January 2017.

It is near-impossible to summarise his Presidency thus far in a matter of minutes, although the Economist magazine attempted to condense it all, concluding that Trump economic successes have been a case of being in the “right place at the right time”.


On Benji Hyer’s show, listener Georgia markets Trump’s Presidency as 0.5/10, and claimed that any achievements have been minuscule when taking into account the magnitude of the US economy.

Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.

Hyer's Highlights: Second Brexit Referendum

The former UKIP leader, and Brexit Leave campaigner, went on national TV this week to suggest a second Brexit referendum

Hyer's Highlights: Second Brexit Referendum

Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage has incredibly declared that he is close to backing a second EU referendum to end the “whinging and whining” of anti-Brexit campaigners, such as Nick Clegg or Tony Blair.

Farage told Channel 5’s The Wright Stuff programme that a fresh vote could “kill off” the Remain campaign for a generation.


It’s difficult to understand Farage’s motive here; was it to remain relevant, or to maintain his position as the counterpart to the status quo? Also, to be in preference of a referendum on the terms of the deal once they become clear is one thing, but to now support a second nation-wide referendum on our entire membership of the EU is bold and exceptional. There seems to be a delicious irony whereby the only person now questioning the referendum result mandate is the individual most responsible for Brexit.
