Heard on All Things Considered
Aparna Nancherla is a HUGE influence on us at the show. The way she talks about her anxiety is so hilarious and accessible. It's really inspirational for me (Drew) to talk about their anxiety in such a real way and to make it so funny!
"After the election, I started talking about the gentrification of mental health a little bit, where a lot of new people started moving into the neighborhood of anxiety and depression," Nancherla says. "You're like, 'Welcome! But I've always lived here.'"
