Writer and musician Mica Lemiski interviews women and non-binary artists about a range of topics (gender! politics! love! literature!) in a podcast best-suited to bitches, witches, and anyone who's ever been called "hysterical."
Episode 28: My Brain Feels Weird: Rachel Jansen Talks OCD and Anxiety
We all want our brains to feel good, but sometimes they are stubborn and silly and uncooperative and BLEGH WHY. Writer and wonder-woman Rachel Jansen knows all about this, and she's hear to give us the scoop on OCD, anxiety, and why getting medicated was the right choice for her. We talk about weed and why getting high may not always be the fun escape it's made out to be, and, finally, we dish on the digital age and whether or not mental illness is something we should be tweeting about constantly. Because what if we're complicit in our own suffering?! Come "hash" it out with us on the Fainting Couch!
