best of occupational therapy

In keeping with the podcast theme, today I’m featuring even more OT podcasts. While many OT podcasts are hosted by people who reside in the USA, there are a handful who stream in from countries across the world. So for this week’s post, I want to highlight the amazing OT practitioners who runs podcasts in other countries (outside of the US).


This podcast is hosted by Brock Cook and comes to us from all the way in Australia. Brock has a multitude of episodes ranging from topics in mental health, occupational concepts, language, leadership, and adaptive sports to name a few. Brock’s thoughtfulness and reflectiveness shines through his podcast and provides an in-depth look into so many aspects within the profession of occupational therapy.

OT & Chill

Kwaku Agyemang hosts this amazing show and provides us some relaxing and chilling out conversations from over in the United Kingdom. His episodes have covered topics including autism, stalking, attachment styles, and sex.

The Jeneralist

This podcast is hosted by Jen Taubensee and aims to share perspectives on occupational therapy from Canada. Jen interviews a wide variety of occupational therapy practitioners from Canada and shares insight into what occupational therapy looks like there.

The OT Lifestyle Movement

This is a brand new podcast that just came out recently and actually features Mr. Brock Cook from Occupied in one of its first episodes. The host, Rhiannon Crispe, explores inspiring conversations that aim to empower the listener to take action in their own life.

Strong Minds Club

SMC is cohosted by Tegan, a provisional psychologist, and Bree, an occupational therapist, in Australia. They teamed up to open up conversations about mental health, including interviewing professionals, people who have been diagnosed with mental illness, and the people who are supporting their loved ones through mental illness.

Recognizing Our Impact As Practitioners

This week I released an episode with Effie Parks from the Once Upon a Gene podcast. Effie is a mother of a son who has a rare genetic disease who has been on the receiving end of therapy for years. On the show, Effie shares her beautiful insight and experience as a parent and going through the pediatric therapy journey. Her words will be sure to help any practitioner who questions their impact understand the difference they make in the lives of their clients and their families.
