Show Notes Chapter Markers

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here to get through this latest episode of our podcast. Some podcasts seem to go on forever, and that's a mighty long time. But Coree and Elsa here to talk you down, and to be casually bigoted against the Irish.

It's easy to say there's no shame in accepting and owning one's issues. But anyone who's tried to talk with a gymrat coworker or oblivious aunt has encountered the subtle humiliation of being told "everyone gets depressed," or "you don't need medications, just think happy thoughts," and other nonsense that comes with society's contempt for mental illness. That's why this week's topic is stigmas! (Not Stigmata; we're saving the religious mania stuff for a future episode.)

Our show is a production of Cinder Block Comedy, in association with Sodabags Studios and your town is next. Media. This episode was engineered and produced by Alex Fleming and Alexander Scott. Special thanks to Morgan Pielli for our show artwork and Intellectual Dark Wave for our theme song, from his album Labor Songs.
