We're Nervous: A 
Podcast About Anxiety and Society

podcast
culture
Fall 2018
I've struggled with anxiety my entire life, although I've often been hesitant to talk about it because showing emotion is weird and makes me uncomfortable. Despite that, I produced this limited podcast series examining the role of anxiety and mental health in American society. I get super theoretical and media theory-ish, but also try to ground the whole thing in my personal experiences and the experiences of people in my life.
