A Bipolar, A Schizophrenic, and a Podcast
A Bipolar, A Schizophrenic, and a Podcast is a weekly podcast that explores life through the unique double lens of a young woman living with schizophrenia and a guy living with bipolar. Each episode explores their past and present experiences as shaped by mental illness. Recorded after midnight in vacant locations -- tune in to see where they'll record and what they'll discuss next!
Both try to come up with a new name for medication classification anti-psychotics, and discuss frustration with other people’s opinions of potentially spreading mental illness to their children. Finally, they discuss how mental health care is not easy for everyone to access and that is unfair.
Gabe Howard (bipolar) and Michelle Hammer (schizophrenic) ask each other questions that they must also answer themselves. They ask about their diagnoses, dealing with symptoms, telling other people about their diagnoses, and where they think they would each be today if they weren’t saddled with mental illness. Find out what Michelle’s friends said when she told them about her schizophrenia. What do you think both of their moms think about their grown children's medication?
Listeners will learn about what it is like living with and surviving mental illness, and have a great time doing it. The hosts’ candid talk about their lives will make listeners never look at schizophrenia or bipolar disorder the same way again.
