The Two Jess(es) have the extreme pleasure to sit down with the HILARIOUS podcast host and author, John Moe to talk about...DEPRESSION. As May is Mental Health Awareness Month, John Moe's fourth book entitled The Hilarious World of Depression becomes the center of this episode. John is refreshingly candid about his life long struggle with depression, and shares the methods that work for HIM. He talks with JessK and JessB about the many misconceptions around depression and those who fight daily to keep their heads above water. Through analogies and story telling, John explains how he is able to keep working in his purpose- helping us all find a way to exhale in the middle of depression, through laughter, even if we can't get out of bed.
