Engaging, helpful window into creative process and mental health

Based on the first two conversations, this is a unique and worthwhile podcast -- a view into productive, accomplished people managing their mental health challenges during the creative process and daily life, with a mixture of personal experience and practical information. I look forward to more!

Definitely Worth a Listen

Not only does Jason put into words what a lot of us are feeling, but he also does it in such a non-chalant way. I love that he is able to do what he loves despite suffering from OCD. I think it gives a lot of us hope. Keep up the good work, Dr. Z!
