Episode 9: Brain on a Stick (with Sara Benincasa)

March 24, 2016

Alice and Deanna get in a room with healthy snacks and, more importantly, comedian/author Sara Benincasa! Together they work out whether LA or NYC is better for mental health, how you can be depressed even if you’re privileged, what it’s like to go public with your mental illnesses, and why we should all cultivate radical overconfidence. In a word: delicious.
