Episode 21: Robert Brink


Welcome to Quarantine Call With Shieldless Mag where your hosts Nick Shields and Reuben Barrack speak with skaters in the midst of quarantine to catch up and talk skateboarding. This is a special episode for the end of Mental Health Awareness month where we sit down with renowned skateboard journalist Robert Brink and discuss his recent diagnosis of depression and autism at the age of 44. We talk about the decision to go public with his diagnosis, the response from the skate community, seeking therapy, and giving advice to anyone struggling with their mental health. We tie this all in with lots of skate talk and even some candle making convo to start us out. Keep up with us on Instagram @shieldlessmag. Follow Rob on Instagram @robertbrink and check out his candle company at thehundredthacre.com. Find more resources on mental health at nami.org. More music by Beat$ByDojo HERE.
