Episode 20: “It’s Okay To Suck a Little Bit” (with Paolo Sambrano)

October 27, 2016

Alice and Deanna chat with writer/performer Paolo Sambrano about how he turned his struggles with bipolar disorder into a one-man show (as you do). They also talk about the pros and cons of treating your body like it’s a coding project, why Alice can’t meditate, when self-care becomes another form of disordered thinking, and is everything out of reach because you ate gluten once. Plus: delightful things!
