    Episode 6 - Jenny Owen Youngs

    Episode 6 - Jenny Owen Youngs

    Closing off this season of I HATE MYSELF is singer/songwriter Jenny Owen Youngs. Youngs' notable works include the albums Batten the Hatches, Transmitter Failure, and An Unwavering Band of Light, the single "Fuck Was I," and the recent hit "High Hopes," co-written by her. Youngs discusses why she recently moved from Los Angeles to Maine, and she contemplates the fatal contract that we often make with our anxiety: embracing it for the sake of the (terrifying) motivation it provides and how it goads us at our work. She, Joe, and Wade offer ideas on how artists can break free of that contract, and make productivity more bearable for ourselves.
    Jenny Owen Youngs' newest, critically-acclaimed EP, Echo Mountain, is out now.

    Episode 5 - George C. Romero

    Episode 5 - George C. Romero

    Heavy Metal fans may know George C. Romero as the writer behind works like Cold Dead War and The Rise, but the rest of the world may only know him as the son of the late boundary-smashing director, George A. Romero. In this episode of I Hate Myself, George lets us in, past the veil, and into the heart of what it was like to grow up with that expectation. What George has weathered is not for the faint of heart - including travelling the country on top of railcars. In this penultimate episode, George chats with Joe and Wade about why creators can get "addicted" to darkness, danger, and reclusion. Most importantly, he offers his advice for how to keep on rocking, rebelling, and sticking it to authority - without getting too mired in your demons.

Informative

I quite enjoy listening to this every week. It’s informative on things that are important in this day in age. Plus getting to hear depression and others things from Joe + gussets is great. Meaning that you when it comes to that topic. I never thought that many “famous” people would talk about it. So the fact that Joe is good.
