Do you know where your podcast is?

Nothing is more liberating than commiserating with a close friend about inner turmoil and personal struggles. Such discussions might focus on situational life events—breakups, unemployment—or they can reach deeper into one’s psyche and address depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses. Discussing the latter is incredibly brave, but disclosure is often difficult, leading many to remain silent.Given that one in five adults in the U.S. live with a mental illness, feelings of debilitating depression, panic, and isolation are hardly uncommon, but stigma often gets in the way of honest dialogue. This is why emotionally honest conversations with trusted confidants are so valuable —and why podcasts like the League of Awkward Unicorns are necessary to expand the conversation and bring it to people who may not have a listening ear at the ready.
