Copinghagen Podcast AI: Embracing Uniqueness
Everybody has their own story, and their own unique relationship with the life that they live.Each week on the Copinghagen podcast, we meet somebody who has experienced the feeling of being an outsider. We talk about their lives, the obstacles they’ve encountered, and most importantly, how they learned to cope."Finding healthier ways to cope was a gradual process, not something that happened overnight. There wasn't a single turning point, but rather a series of moments and realizations that led me on a better path.One of the key factors was discovering a small, supportive community online that shared my interests in art and literature. It was like finding kindred spirits who understood my passions and the challenges I faced. Their encouragement and shared experiences helped me feel less alone in my pursuits." This week on the Copinghagen podcast you can meet Jake, who hails from a small town in the Midwest. Jake has always been a bit of a dreamer, and he had these big ideas about the world, about life, that didn't quite align with the more traditional values around him. Listen as Jake tells movingly of the challenges he's faced in life, and how he learned to cope with them. Yet John doesn't actually exist...'Jake' is the result of an interview conducted between Patrick Cullen, host of the Copinghagen podcast, and Chat GPT. Chat GPT was asked to imagine itself to be "a real living human, whose story should include defining experiences of feeling outside society." 'Jake's' interview answers were then narrated by an AI voice created using Elevenlabs.io, while the episode artwork was made using Nightcafe, with a prompt chosen by 'Jake'..."Illustrate the journey of self-acceptance through art, words, and embracing uniqueness amidst life's challenges."LINK TO INTERVIEW ON CHAT GPT: https://chat.openai.com/share/d69fe474-2fe4-44f0-a839-2a89b63d3911COPINGHAGEN PODCAST:https://copinghagen.info/10/A copinghagen production https://copinghagen.info/

Copinghagen Podcast AI: Fear of Success
Everybody has their own story, and their own unique relationship with the life that they live.Each week on the Copinghagen podcast, we meet somebody who has experienced the feeling of being an outsider. We talk about their lives, the obstacles they’ve encountered, and most importantly, how they learned to cope.  "Your description resonates with a common theme in narrative therapy – the belief that good things will be taken away or that one doesn't deserve happiness or success. This belief can be rooted in past experiences, conditioning, or self-perceptions that have developed over time.It's essential to acknowledge that these beliefs can influence our actions and decisions, often leading to self-sabotage as a way to protect ourselves from the perceived pain of losing what we've gained.From a narrative perspective, one approach is to externalise these beliefs. Instead of identifying with them as absolute truths about yourself, you can explore them as separate entities or characters in your life story. This can help you gain distance and perspective, making it easier to challenge these beliefs."  This week on the Copinghagen podcast you can enjoy an enlightening and inspiring therapeutic conversation. Patrick Cullen, host of the Copinghagen podcast, talks  about fear of success with a therapist specialising in Existential and Narrative therapy. Yet despite thoughtful advice and thought provoking questions, the therapist doesn’t actually exist… The therapist in question is the result of an interview conducted between Patrick Cullen, host of the Copinghagen podcast and Chat GPT. Chat GPT was asked to imagine itself to be "a therapist for the purposes of illustrating the potential of AI, and to help illustrate different types of therapy."  The therapist’s questions and comments were then narrated by an AI voice created using Elevenlabs.io, while the episode artwork was made using Nightcafe, with a prompt the therapist chose itself… "Create an image representing the journey of success, with a point as a milestone, surrounded by fluidity and adaptability."   LINK TO INTERVIEW ON CHAT GPT: https://chat.openai.com/share/d89b2f8a-5fc9-40df-9ea8-e5f47f69a82f COPINGHAGEN PODCAST: https://copinghagen.info/10/A copinghagen production https://copinghagen.info/

Copinghagen Podcast AI: Finding Hope
Everybody has their own story, and their own unique relationship with the life that they live.Each week on the Copinghagen podcast, we meet somebody who has experienced the feeling of being an outsider. We talk about their lives, the obstacles they’ve encountered, and most importantly, how they learned to cope." My journey with bipolar disorder began in my early twenties. It was a confusing and challenging time. I didn't fully understand what was happening to me. I had these intense mood swings, moments of extreme elation followed by deep lows. It was like riding a rollercoaster with no control.When I finally received the diagnosis, it was both a relief and a heavy realization. It meant I wasn't alone in my struggles, and there was a name for what I was experiencing. But it also meant a lifetime of managing this condition. Before the diagnosis, life was like trying to navigate a stormy sea without a compass. I had moments of joy and achievement, but they were often overshadowed by the darkness of depression. It was a constant battle." This week on the Copinghagen podcast you can meet a woman in her late thirties, originally from a small town in the Midwest, who talks about her journey of coping with bipolar disorder and postpartum depression while navigating the challenges of becoming a new mother. It's been a tough road for her, but she hopes that by sharing her experiences, she can offer some hope and inspiration to others who might be going through similar struggles. Yet despite all the experiences she shares, she doesn’t actually exist… The woman in question is the result of an interview conducted between Patrick Cullen, host of the Copinghagen podcast, and Chat GPT. Chat GPT was asked to imagine itself to be "a real living human, whose story should include defining experiences of feeling outside society." Her interview answers were then narrated by an AI voice created using Elevenlabs.io, while the episode artwork was made using Nightcafe, with a prompt she chose herself..."Create an image of a woman, once overwhelmed by bipolar & postpartum depression, now embracing motherhood."LINK TO INTERVIEW ON CHAT GPT: https://chat.openai.com/share/46aca36a-fc14-44fd-bb04-6906cda779c6COPINGHAGEN PODCAST: https://copinghagen.info/10/A copinghagen production https://copinghagen.info/

Everybody has their own story, and their own unique relationship with the life that they live.Each week on the Copinghagen podcast, we meet somebody who has experienced the feeling of being an outsider. We talk about their lives, the obstacles they’ve encountered, and most importantly, how they learned to cope."Addiction robbed me of years that I could have spent building a better life and nurturing relationships. Those years can never be reclaimed, and it's a heavy burden to carry.I also lost some friends along the way, people who couldn't or wouldn't understand the struggles I was going through. It's painful to think about those connections that I severed, and I often wonder how things might have been different if I had made better choices." This week on the Copinghagen podcast you can meet John, just an average guy who's had his share of ups and downs in life. Amongst those ups and downs are a debilitating addiction to opioids and a period of long-term unemployment. Listen as John tells movingly of the challenges he's faced in life, and how he learned to cope with them.
