Posted on Leave a commentPosted in episodes

Casey Moran is back and we are so glad to have him on the podcast again! In this episode, we talk a lot about depression and Casey’s current battle with his mental health. He talks about how he is just coming out of the longest bout of depression he has ever had and we talk about what that was like and how he is staying proactive with his health. He shares tools he uses to get him through his darkest days and talks about the power suicidal thoughts can have and how being open, vulnerable and honest is one of his greatest strengths. Casey also talks about his experiences with intermittent fasting and offers another perspective. We dive into the world of stand up comedy and gush about our admiration for Casey, and he says some delightful and sweet things about Andy and Joleen as well. It’s a mini love fest with great conversation. And if you love this episode you will absolutely love Casey’s podcast, Discussing Depression, so be sure to check it out!

Ep 10: Major Depressive Disorder, In-Patient Care, Sex Addiction, with Casey M

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

We are here today with the host of the Discussing Depression podcast. We talk about how depression affected being a sports broadcaster, and how sportscasting and journalism are lonely and competitive careers. We nerd out about stand-up comedy and the Minnesota Vikings! We hear how stand-up comedy helped save Casey’s life, the stigma around depression, the challenges he faced after his diagnosis and the battles and challenges with medications. We talk the importance of a strong support system and the cycles of depression. Casey shares his story of being both a patient and an employee at an in patient facility and how he feels this strong force and has an immense passion for helping others.

As we started wrapping up the episode, Casey reveals some details regarding a sex addiction and he shares a scary realization. We didn’t have time to follow up so we, unfortunately, will have to continue our discussion. So listen next week for part 2 to hear more about what Casey is dealing with.

 

Memorable moments:

“Andy got them dirty teeth!”

“This is the saddest baseball game I’ve ever heard.”

“I felt a physical shift in my brain one morning. It felt like a pen click.”

“Depression is a black cloud that is pushing you down.”

“You’re headlining… A lady?”
