Each episode looks at life through the unique lens of people living with depression, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. The podcast is hosted by Gabe Howard and Michelle Hammer.
A Bipolar, a Schizophrenic, and a Podcast was the first podcast by people with mental illness for people with mental illness. Originally produced on Psych Central, it is now back for a limited 10-episode series.
Loved Ones Distrust Us Due to Our Mental Illness
We discuss the family and friends who still don't trust our thoughts, views, and choices because of mental illness symptoms we experienced in the past. Listen as we share how we feel about being told that everything we do isn't due to our personalities, but rather a symptom of depression, bipolar, psychosis, or anxiety.

Handling Money with Mental Illness
Bipolar and schizophrenia can make handling finances challenging -- to say the least. Even famous pop stars like Britney Spears have had well documented issues managing money.
In this episode, our hosts discuss some common issues, ponder some solutions, and vent about the obstacles people living with mental illness face while trying to support themselves.

2 Truths, 1 Bipolar, 1 Schizophrenic, and a Lie
"It's called two truths and a lie. It's called A Bipolar, a Schizophrenic, and a Podcast. It's not called blow sunshine up your ass and make you feel better." ~Gabe Howard
Season two episode one brings back fan favorite Two truths and a lie where Gabe and Michelle each tell three stories about their experiences with mental illness and try to figure out which one is just made up.

So glad you two are back at it! This is my all time favorite podcast. I listened to all the original series episodes, laughed, cried, learned a lot, and most importantly felt more normal by the end of everything.
Where can we find the archived episodes?
I was hoping to share them with a friend and haven’t seen them on any of the platforms (Apple podcasts, Spotify, psych central)
By far the best mental health podcast out there. The hosts are hilarious and the information is on point.
