    27 - Jessica Poundstone, Artist

    Jessica Poundstone is an artist who lives and works in Portland, Oregon. Named a Top 100 artist by Saatchi Art, Jessica has found creative process through intuition and exploration. She says, "I work on each image until I feel everything click into place: that feeling of 'rightness' tells me it’s done" -- I love that. Jessica's journey through the world of corporate jobs and into the life of an artist is fascinating, as is her own identity journey and the role emotional wellbeing plays in it. I really enjoyed digging into creativity and mental health with Jessica.

    25 - Peter Krask, The Creativity Guide

    Peter M. Krask, a New York-based writer and photographer, is the founder of an unusual consulting business called The Creativity Guide. Using his twenty years of experience in theater, television, visual art, and business, Krask acts as a personal "project whisperer" for creatives and entrepreneurs. His consulting work is informed by the practical know-how of a seasoned creative director, project manager, grant writer, community engagement speaker, and development partner. I loved getting to speak with him about how he helps people navigate the anxiety and stress of transitioning into—or starting—something new.

    23 - The Zachar Twins, Zach and Michael

    Zach and Michael Zakar call themselves the "Middle Eastern Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen,"  which gives you a taste of how funny they are. Writers, models, and actors, the Zakar Twins most recent book, "How to Be F*****g Happy," is out now. I love this line from their book description, "Happiness takes practice, so grab a pen because you're writing this story too."

    As you'll tell by watching this interview, I have a ton of fun with these Iraqi brothers. Based in Detroit, their first book, "Pray the Gay Away" dug into their experiences growing up in a conservative family and coming to terms with their sexuality (and finding out they were both gay after hooking up with the same guy!).

    The Zakar twins are like fun friends you want to discuss your own mental health journey with as they share theirs. We'll be hearing more from them.

    22 - Maurice Chiang, CEO of Prairie Health

    Maurice Chiang is the CEO and Co-Founder of Prairie Health, a new startup bringing genetic testing to a patient-centered approach to mental health. This is incredibly promising and forward-looking! Genetic testing provides useful information to psychiatrists and prescribing physicians about  to how to treat people with varied cultural backgrounds.

    Did you know that American women are often prescribed SSRIs at inappropriate dosages, for example, because of a "one size meets all" mentality that pervades our health system? Using data from genetic testing is a great first step toward addressing this issue.

    Maurice earned his undergraduate degree in bioengineering at Stanford (which is where he met his co-founders), then got a master’s in computer science. In this podcast, we talk about where the team is now, and where they're going. I will definitely be keeping my eye on Prairie Health as I really admire their approach and work.

Attn. Overthinkers

Host Meredith Arthur is going there. An endearing mix of grave and amused with a gentle (and rarely wrong) b.s.-detector, she’s unraveling outdated tropes and getting us out of our heads and pointing us toward new ways through and maybe even up. For overthinkers everywhere. You know who you are.

Meredith is a bright, curious and engaged host, and I love being on this voyage with her. This podcast explores such an unusual niche - tech/mental health -and Meredith approaches it with such gusto, insight, and joy.
