This is a replay of episode 12 on Robin Williams. 6 years on from his death, one of the world's favourite comedians and actors is sorely missed - but there are also many lessons we can draw from this famously troubled funnyman's death.

*If so, what would that look like - as well as the mental shift that accompanies it
Special treat: what your ego sounds like. I have an actual recording of it!
