Spotify has launched a new podcast, Killing It, which tells the stories of those who have attained success in the cut-throat startup world while simultaneously battling mental health issues. The show is hosted by veteran tech journalist Aleks Krotoski, alongside therapist Petra Velzeboer and “mental health gym” owner James Routledge. Each episode focuses on the story of one individual entrepreneur, and examines how the stress and frantic pace of startup life can result in depression, anxiety, and burnout. The first episode in the six-part series focuses on Alex Depledge, founder of on-demand cleaning startup Hassle (now Helpling) and “proptech” company Resi. Mental health is an inherently uncomfortable subject, but she effortlessly builds a rapport with her subjects, allowing them to be frank about an issue many would prefer to avoid.
