AfterPartyPod: Brian Finkelstein

Storyteller Brian Finkelstein is an Emmy-nominated writer, a regular performer at the Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) in LA and the host of the LA Moth Storyslams. He's also performed one-man shows all over the world, including a recent tour to New Zealand to do First Day Off in a Long Time, a show based on his years working at a suicide hotline. Here, he and AfterParty's Anna David talk about getting through depression, whether or not saying you wish you'd never been born is depressing, not taking medication and what it would be like if this podcast were the only thing to survive a world-ending earthquake, among other topics.

AfterPartyPod: Sara Benincasa

Writer and comedian Sara Benincasa is a memoirist, a novelist, a performer, a delight and also completely open about her issues with mental health. After having her first panic attacks as a child, the New Jersey-reared lass managed to later overcome agoraphobia and write a book (currently being developed as a TV show) about it. Here, she and AfterPartyChat's Anna David discuss finding the right medication, whether or not regular therapy is necessary and why remaining grateful while staying confident is the perfect balance to strike, among many other topics.
