“Writer Alice Bradley and media technologist and speaker Deanna Zandt launched the League of Awkward Unicorns in November. Bradley and Zandt have been close friends for several years, and both have been diagnosed with depression and anxiety disorders (social anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder, respectively). They see the League of Awkward Unicorns as a way to bring their pragmatic, comical, and empathetic sensibilities to the mental illness discussion.

“I think both of us felt like there is a huge gap in mainstream culture when it comes to talking about mental health,” Zandt explained in an email to the Daily Dot. “It’s either something Very Serious, or the butt of a joke. We wanted to open up some space in between.””

I have not listened to this podcast, but plan to check it out soon. Has anyone out there checked it out yet? What did you think?
