Depresh Mode with John Moe
Lane Moore on Being Alone, and Not Swiping Right on Naked Blood-Soaked Guys

Depresh Mode with John Moe

Forming emotional bonds with fellow human beings is one of the most basic instincts we have. There's a primal urge to attach yourself to others, for safety, for mating purposes, or hell just to have lunch. But just because that desire is present doesn't mean that it's easy or even inevitable to actually form those connections. At the same time, we're all going to spend some time alone. Maybe in brief moments, maybe for very long stretches. Comedian, actor, and writer Lane Moore thinks about these things a lot. She is perhaps best known for Tinder Live, a touring series of live shows where she checks out profiles of men looking for connections and provides live commentary and live swiping before an audience. She finds that most people are pretty nice, honest people but that some of them do some pretty weird stuff. Stuff like posing for their profile pictures while covered in blood, naked, next to a deer they killed. Or being naked except for a strategically placed top hat. She tours with the show a lot but has also given quite a bit of thought to the other side of the coin and has written a book titled “How To Be Alone.”Lane shares her thoughts on all this plus living with complex post-traumatic stress disorder in a deeply personal conversation that's valuable if you've ever been alone or with someone else. Which covers everyone, I'm pretty sure.Also, stick around after the main interview for a meditation minute with our pal Laura House.Visit Lane's website at lanemoore.org or her Linktree at linktr.ee/hellolanemoore for tour dates, her book, and more.

Amos Lee has a wonderfully smooth singing voice and plays the acoustic guitar beautifully. And if you never paid attention to his lyrics, you might even find his music to soothing and mellow. If you do lean into his lyrics a little and if you open yourself up to his tone and phrasing, you will soon find references to pain, loneliness, depression, anxiety, and trauma. This is especially the case on Amos's upcoming album, Dreamland. He says he's more comfortable talking about that side of himself now than on the other seven albums he's released dating back to 2005.In this interview, Amos shares plenty, including how he went from being a second grade teacher named Ryan Massaro to being a musical sensation named Amos Lee pretty much in one night. We also hear about a pivotal mental health crisis in college that realigned his priorities and how he made a woman in hospice dance when she didn't think she wanted to.Visit Amos Lee's website and listen to Shoulda Known Better and Worry No More at www.amoslee.com.

John Carpenter has made an impact on film in two different disciplines. As a director , there's so many memorable movies in his filmography: Halloween, Escape from New York, Big Trouble in Little China, The Thing, and They Live – to name a few. His work as a composer is just as iconic. Carpenter scored many of his early films – including Halloween. The music he wrote has influenced an entire generation of horror soundtracks. His latest work can be heard in Halloween Kills, the latest installment in the Halloween franchise. It's out now in theaters and the streaming platform Peacock. When Bullseye got the opportunity to talk with Carpenter, we knew just the person for the job: April Wolfe. She was previously a film critic, and former host of the Maximum Fun genre film podcast Switchblade Sisters. These days she's a screenwriter. April takes a deep dive with John Carpenter on various number of his movie projects and film scores including his Apocalypse Trilogy and Assault on Precinct 13. He also breaks down how he first composed the original Halloween theme – you might be surprised to learn bongos played an important role.

Happy MaxFun Block Party, babies! And a special welcome to all the new babies out there! This episode is made with the new listener in mind. If you're a long time listener, don't fret! There will be plenty for you to enjoy. On Wiki of the Week, we read the most requested Wikipedia page that we've already read. "Le Pétomane was a French flatulist (professional farter) and entertainer. He was famous for his remarkable control of the abdominal muscles, which enabled him to seemingly fart at will. His stage name combines the French verb péter, "to fart" with the -mane, "-maniac" suffix, which translates to "fartomaniac". The profession is referred to as "flatulist", "farteur", or "fartiste".

There's some bright spots, but there's also a bunch of really questionable characters and creative decisions that we're afraid just aren't working (and it doesn't all have to do with those lights).Where do we go from here? Unfortunately to Crown Jewel (and no, we're still not going to talk about. Looks like a good card though).Main EventAEW is officially two years old. It was founded on the promise of “AEW is for Everyone.” We've banged on about how they've failed to live up to that promise and will go into detail here.

Alison Rosen cautions us to not read too much into the title of her show. It's really just an expression that was popular in slang vernacular a few years ago when the podcast started. Besides, if every person listening or appearing on the show was her new best friend, that makes her pretty fickle on friendship. But the name works really well because she does things a friend should. She shares her stories, she's vulnerable, and she genuinely cares about the person she's talking to. In this episode, we hear how postpartum depression kicked her into taking therapy a lot more seriously. She tells us how she still struggles with not tying her quantitative measurement on a bathroom scale to her value as a person. And she shares why it didn't really bother her when Adam Carolla called her “baby girl” as long as it was on the air.Listen to Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend on the podcatcher of your choice.

Or someone just hamming through an over the top performance as a person with multiple personalities.In this episode, we blow the whistle on some stuff like that but we also recognize some artists who go the extra mile to create portrayals of mental illness that are truthful and integral to the story.

9/11 20 Years later, and we unpack why it may be hard to reflect, or bear witness on the many documentaries surfacing right now on this look back of this traumatic event, amidst a current traumatic moment. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went to the Met Gala, and like anytime she does anything, she and her dress has everyone talking on both sides. It's Hispanic Heritage month! Or LatinX Heritage month? We cover the origins of Hispanic Heritage month, define terms, and explore why some Afro Latinos don't consider themselves Latino, and why some Millennials are calling out the Anti Blackness of Latinidad, and the history of white washing in South America. Then we have fun facts about the legend, the icon herself: Selena! REFERENCE LINKS: AOC at the Met GalaWhen it comes to the Latinidad, who isn't/is included? Afro LatinoOrigins of Hispanic/LatinX Heritage MonthColorism in Hispanic/Latino Community, What's up with Latinx!?The Root, YouTube: Breaking down the Anti-Blackness of LatinidadMinority Korner on YouTube:  https://bit.ly/2JsXEuuCONTACT USTwitter: @minoritykornerEmail: minoritykorner@gmail.comIG: @minoritykornerHost/Producer: James Arthur M: TW: @JamesArthur_M, IG: @JamesArthur

Therapy isn't about hating your mother. It's not about crying over something that happened when you were six and then dwelling on it for the rest of your life. And the difficulty or trauma you faced back then is not something you can simply “get over” or “move past”.Good therapy is much more like what Jackie Kashian did, as she describes in this episode. She talks about the violence in her home growing up. And the neglect. And the substance use and death of her mother. Then she talks about going to therapy and figuring out how that past informed her adult life, how it guided her decisions, and how it laid a foundation for the life she would live.With that understanding in place, she could better distinguish between healthy and unhealthy habits. It's not dwelling in the past, it's getting a map for the future.Listen to Jackie Kashian's podcasts, The Jackie and Laurie Show and The Dork Forest on the podcatcher of your choice.

COVID has been traumatic for young people. For a year and a half now, it's either been impossible to go to school or the place that they go to doesn't match what they used to know as school. The virus may have caused severe illness or death in their families. It's a frightening time for all of us and especially so among the youngest and most vulnerable. So as in-class education really begins again in earnest, what's the state of these people showing up to the classrooms and how can we, not just as parents or teachers but members of society, help?We speak with Ruby Ramirez, principal in the Dallas Independent School District, about how she prepared her school for the state of mind the students are returning with. One thing that's helped everyone feel better? Masks. Yep, the things that made everyone so uncomfortable in the earlier days of COVID now give students a sense of security in the classroom and hallways.Masks are a big deal for Dr. Robin Gurwitch as well. She's a psychologist and Professor in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University School of Medicine and she points out that one of the best ways to recover from our societal trauma is to stop the virus itself. To do that, wear your dang masks where you're told to wear it. In the interview, Robin mentions some online resources that could help anyone.Here they are:National Child Traumatic Stress Network (www.nctsn.org or https://www.nctsn.org/what-is-child-trauma/trauma-types/disasters/pandemic-resources)American Psychological Association (https://www.apa.org/topics/covid-19/parenting-caregiving) National Child Traumatic Stress Network: Parent/Caregiver Guide to Helping Families Cope with COVID-19   https://www.nctsn.org/resources/supporting-children-during-coronavirus-covid19Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress: https://www.cstsonline.org/assets/media/documents/CSTS_FS_Discussing_Coronavirus_w_Your_Children.pdf  https://www.cstsonline.org/assets/media/documents/CSTS_FS_Finding_Right_Words_Talk_Children_Teens_Coronavirus.pdfhttps://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/for-parents.htmlAmerican Psychological Association at https://www.apa.org/topics/covid-19). Thank you to all our listeners who support the show as monthly members of Maximum Fun. Hey, remember, you're part of Depresh Mode and we want to hear what you want to hear about.

When we asked Dr. Darshan Mehta, Medical Director of the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine in Boston and an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, about the image problem that meditation had, he knew exactly what we were talking about. As he points out, when media outlets write about meditation, it tends to be accompanied by a photo or illustration of a glowing, athletic white woman in a particular yoga pose. This tendency is kind of funny, sure, but it also conveys that unless you look like that, you can't meditate.Not so. Laura House, a comedian, writer, podcaster, and meditation instructor, explains that anyone can learn to meditate, reduce stress, and find more calm in their lives. It doesn't necessitate any religious beliefs or New Age philosophy.Dr. Mehta walks us through the medical side of it and how it helps blood pressure levels and recurrence of depression. It can also give your immune system help as it broadly reduces inflammation of cells and tissue.Listen to Tiny Victories here or on the podcatcher of your choice.
