Podcast: The Hilarious World of Depression

From www.hilariousworld.org -  A show about clinical depression...with laughs? Well, yeah. Depression is an incredibly common and isolating disease experienced by millions, yet often stigmatized by society. The Hilarious World of Depression is a series of frank, moving, and, yes, funny conversations with top comedians who have dealt with this disease, hosted by veteran humorist and public radio host John Moe. Join guests such as Maria Bamford, Paul F. Tompkins, Andy Richter, and Jen Kirkman to learn how they’ve dealt with depression and managed to laugh along the way.

The Hilarious World of Depression is not medical treatment and should not be seen as a substitute for therapy or medication. But it is a chance to gain some insight, have a few laughs, and realize that people with depression are not alone and that together, we can all feel a bit better.

The Hilarious World of Depression

Clinical depression is one of the most common and yet most stigmatized mental health conditions. And not all forms of depression are created equal. Depression can take as many forms as there are people who have it. That’s what host John Moe hopes you’ll take away from his numerous interviews with public figures like Darryl McDaniels from hip-hop group Run-DMC and Peter Sagal of the popular NPR show “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!” This show is good if you’re struggling with your own symptoms or know someone with depression. The enormous variety of real stories about the ups and down of clinical depression can make you think about how the condition can look different for everyone while also giving you some tips and tools to coping with all the forms it takes.

Hi there! I'm an actor, producer, and writer who is devoted to storytelling and mental health awareness. After struggling through my own mental health, I found that non-traditional resources, like the ones we explore on More Than You See, helped me immensely get through my dark times. Thus, this website and podcast were born! I look forward to helping you gain agency over your mental health journey as you build your own toolkit of resources, tips, and ideas.
