Thanks to the Cinemonic Entertainment Core in LA for selecting The Depressed Comedian episode of our Mental Ideas Podcast as one of their Official Selects at their Cinemonic Podcast Festival! Mentalist radio host Sadie Kaye explores why depression is no laughing matter (or is it?) with American cartoonist and author Larry Feign, best known in Hong Kong as the creator of the Lily Wong cartoon strip. You can explore the catalogue of officially selected podcasts from the festival on Pod Playground.
The Mental Ideas Podcast will return to the air later this year and feature exciting new voices, including poet Ahmed Elbeshlawy, actor and producer of Little Boxes (which recently won ‘Best Pandemic Film’ from the Hong Kong World Film Festival) Lee Boardman, writer and literary editor Paul Clinton Corrigan, Blacksmith Books founder and publisher Pete Spurrier, Peel Street poet Vishal Nanda, author Reena Bhojwani, writer and indie publisher Chris Maden and podcaster Ran Elfassy.
