The League of Awkward Unicorns

A Health, Self-Help and Comedy podcast featuring Alice Bradley
Good podcast? Give it some love!
Author and social activist Deanna Zandt (“Share This!”) gets together with author and weirdo Alice Bradley (“Let’s Panic About Babies”) to talk about depression, anxiety, and all the other ways our brains can play tricks on us. They’ll also discuss what helps, whether it’s medication, meditation, or binge-watching Netflix while eating an entire wheel of cheese. Join Alice and Deanna every other week as they amuse each other and the guests they’ve managed to trick into joining them. It’s all going to be okay. Probably.

Episode 34: Make Everyone Uncomfortable with Soraya Chemaly
ANNNNNNNNNGER. Oh, what a topic! Alice and Deanna sit down with author "Rage Becomes Her" author Soraya Chemaly to get the scoop on how anger makes us sick, why that's extra extra special for women, and the secrets of swearing for your health. Plus, motherhood, anger rooms and SWIMMING PIGS. Show notes at http://leagueofawkwardunicorns.com
Episode 33: The Worst Soup
Oh good Lord, you want us to tell you what's in this episode? TRASH. TRASH IS IN THIS EPISODE BECAUSE THE WORLD IS ON FIRE AGAIN. Anyhoo, Alice and Deanna explore their feelings about all the things being trash, which includes talk about sexual assault and harassment, but we don't discuss anything graphic or in detail. Just the usual trash fire of American politics-- this time, the Supreme Court nomination. YMMV. Show notes and more at  http://leagueofawkwardunicorns.com
Episode 32: Aggressively Ma'amed
Well, hello! Alice and Deanna welcome themselves back from their accidental sabbatical, declaring this episode to be the beginning of Season 3. And that’s not all! They also discuss '90s fashion, how much the world is going to hell, what’s the worst thing to say to someone in a dark place, why new music is our salvation right now (but note to Beyoncé and Jay-Z, uh, the country is in flames), and what happens when your cardiologist enters the office on his Segway. Plus: delightful things! Show notes and more: leagueofawkwardunicorns.com PS -- You may notice some audio distortion this episode. Our incredibly overpaid sound engineer was asleep on the job, and couldn't totally make it perfect later, and not that she's a perfectionist, but SHE BEGS YOUR FORGIVENESS.
