  7. Jenny Lawson is Very Fond of Creepy Smiling Dead Animals and Worries Quite a Bit | The Hilarious World of Depression | APM Podcasts

    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. If you have not met the disease personally, it’s almost certain that someone you know has, whether it’s a friend, family member, colleague, or neighbor. Depression is a vicious cycle of solitude and stigma that leaves people miserable and sometimes dead. Frankly, we’re not going to put up with that anymore.

    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.

  8. Core Intuition » Episode 346: Doing The Best I Can

    Manton and Daniel talk about coming to terms with the challenge of juggling too many things, making our indie businesses more efficient, and the tough question of how to cut projects and commitments that are stealing time from the main focus.

  9. #35 Girls just wanna have puns [S4E3 with Misty Monroe, Claire Berger, Misty Stinnett, & Kelly Perron] – Beyond Beyond Belief

    Prepare for an all-female takeover of Beyond Beyond Belief!

    Along with Tiffany, our guest hosts this week are: Misty Monroe, Claire Berger, Misty Stinnett, and Kelly Perron. The hosts dive into their relationship with the show and the supernatural. And Misty Monroe regales us with her amazing and frightening Ouija experiences.

    Story 1: Out Of Service – A couple camping in the woods is saved by a man who needs saving himself.

    Given the title, cell phones don’t really play a big part.

    No one buys that the yellow jacket man is still alive.

    Kelly wonders how many people have disappeared in these woods.

    Story 2: When I Was Big – A child psychologist discovers a strange connection with a young patient through his childhood books.

    Misty S. doesn’t understand why the bookshop employee didn’t help find the books. Misty M. knows she just isn’t paid enough.

    Tiffany thinks the bookstore would tell this story to drum up publicity.

    Story 3: The Greedy Investor – After greedy relators are cursed by an elderly tenant, they find that closing a deal is more difficult than they thought.

    Claire buys this story. Grandchildren could easily return and buy the home.

    Tiffany feels the one thing that’s not fact is this woman being with this “frog” man.

    Story 4: Seven Hours Of Bad Luck – After breaking a mirror, a woman decides not to clean it up, and finds herself facing hours of bad luck.

    No one understands why she tried to put out a fire with a bathrobe.

    Turns out Tiffany only owns one t-shirt.

    Story 5: The Secret Of The Coins – After doing a good deed, a pizza delivery man receives a tip, which turns out to be worth more than it seems.

    Claire thinks the playground is a good reason for the story to get out.

    This could be a case of the complicated theory.

    Part 3 of our Ouija experience:

    Chris warns Jesse not to bring a Ouija into their apartment.

    Kyle and Jesse go on an adventure to find a Ouija.

    The story results are revealed.

    The hosts go into a “detailed” discussion about Beanie Babies.

    Plugs abound!

    Misty Stinnett has a web series called Creeper Upper.

    Claire Berger has a new podcast called High Brow Reviews, with co-host Chris Newth!

    Misty Monroe has a one-woman show called Unapologetically Black.

    Kelly Perron is a photographer and you can see her work on her Instagram. She’s also apart
