On this episode of the podcast I talked to comedian and law student Laura Lyons. However, before listening to the episode I feel I have to issue a trigger warning, because I don’t want to get messages of people upset about the content of this episode.
On May 19th (which was my birthday), just a few days ago, I saw a very heavy post from Laura about that day being the 9 year anniversary of her suicide attempt. Laura and I have met online in some virtual comedy open mics and chat sessions over Zoom. That is where this conversation was extracted from, so sorry if the quality isn’t up to my usual standards, but it sounds good. I also think it was an important story to share.
And of course if you are someone in need of help, or are thinking about suicide, please do not hesitate reaching out to a friend or to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255.
