Description

Meet John Moe, critically-acclaimed public radio personality and host of The Hilarious World of Depression Podcast, when he discusses his struggle with depression with Karen K. It plagued his family and claimed the life of his brother in 2007. As he faced his own illness, he began to see similar behavior patterns and coping mechanisms in his conversations with others. The Hilarious World of Depression is a memoir of Moe’s own journey, revealing more than he’s ever discussed on the podcast. The book is also a treasure trove of laugh-out-loud stories and insights from his interviews with comics, musicians, writers and public figures who have dealt with depression.

“I was inspired by the illness that I’d carried around most of my life,” Moe says, “and how society has insisted we keep quiet about it, even though not being quiet is one of the best things we can do. I wrote the book to tell people that they’re not alone, it can get better, and we can even have some laughs on the way.”

Wrapping up with nine essential things Moe has learned about depression (the eighth of which is “there’s no tidy ending”), this powerful book illuminates depression in an entirely fresh and inspiring way.
