Check out my interview on Fresh Air - https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2020/05/05/850547841/humorist-lightens-depressions-darkness-by-talking-and-laughing-about-it I am the creator and host of the podcast The Hilarious World of Depression and the author of the book of the same name. The normalizing of conversation about mental illness as a way of making treatment more available and effective is my life's work. I think depression is funny in the same way Groucho Marx is funny: rude, disruptive, dangerous, but inherently comic. The human mind is Margaret Dumont in this scenario. Prior to that, I was host and head writer of the public radio program Wits, heard on stations around the country. I'm a long-time contributor to McSweeney's and my writing has appeared in The New York Times Magazine and numerous humor anthologies. I'm the former host of the national public radio programs Weekend America and Marketplace Tech Report. I live in St Paul, Minnesota with my family. God tries to ice murder all the people here every year and we always feel triumphant when/if we survive.
