I can't believe we are already
in our third season. I started this on a whim. I can't believe
we've made it this far and how well the podcast has done. A lot of

and telling your friends about the show. I'm really proud of what

this podcast, you get real. I'm also shocked about how much I love
doing this podcast. I love people and their stories. I love seeing
how they relate to the rest of us. With this podcast you get real

depression, and I wanted to know why. For me, it was a lot of
crying and insomnia.

depression question on social media, I got many answers from people
who were 10s on the depression scale.
