Ep 30: New Years Resolutions For Mental Health, Harassment, Boy Bands and Standup Comedy

Posted on Posted in episodes

We start the new year with some sweet 90’s music and boy band talk, Alex updates us on his therapy journey, and we talk new year’s resolutions. We talk self-help books and Joleen recommends the book “The Four Agreements.” Joleen and Andy talk about the stigmas surrounding pursuing standup comedy and the health and wellness benefits of laughter. Andy gushes about how much she loves the SNL sketch “Welcome to Hell.” (It’s amazing!) and Andy and Joleen share scary road stories and experiences with harassment and the issues we face as women and as female comedians.

We wrap with a really great article discussing 5 New Years Resolutions for Mental Health: https://www.pca-nwa.com/new-years-resolutions-for-mental-health/

We also read funny Facebook New Year’s resolutions written by Meridith McNeill and Dahlya Glick.

We wish you all a Happy New Year and we thank you for your love and support! We love you so much!
