[Full episode] Forrest Eaglespeaker, Rose McGowan, Rachel Bloom, Margaret Trudeau
All week on q (Nov. 30 to Dec. 4), we're exploring the many ways that artists deal with, and draw from, mental health issues in a series called Sound Mind: Mental Health and the Arts. Blackfoot roots singer Forrest Eaglespeaker of The North Sound talks about how he uses music to cope with addiction and the effects of Indigenous intergenerational trauma. Actress Rose McGowan opens up about escaping childhood trauma by travelling to an imaginary planet, and how that place inspired her debut album, Planet 9. Rachel Bloom, the star and co-creator of TV's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, discusses her hilarious new collection of essays, I Want To Be Where The Normal People Are, in which she writes about fame, insecurity and living with OCD and depression. Canadian icon Margaret Trudeau talks about sharing her story with mental illness like never before in a one-woman comedy show, Certain Woman of an Age.
