Ep 58: ADHD, Adderall, Panic Attacks, Comedy, Minnesota with Rachel Scanlon

Posted on Posted in episodes

This week we are joined by comedian, writer, viral video creator and Minnesotan, Rachel Scanlon! We chat about YouTube stars, comments and revenge. We gush about our love for Rachel and how great it has been to see her comedy career grow. Rachel also dives into her history with Adderall and what happened when she tried to quit cold turkey. We talk about the obstacles she faced trying to wean off Adderall, including dealing with doctors and learning how to focus in other ways. Joleen shares her experience with Adderall as well and how it affected her mood. We talk about our comedy experiences and career dreams and some of our most interesting/surprising comedy show moments.

“Tom Hanks is my one troll!”

“I get care packages from my mom too! A lot of pen tops…”

“Yeah no, this is going to take you at least a full year to wean down.”

“We’re from the Midwest, so I don’t want one, but sure I’ll have a pop.”

“Do you have any ideas how many times I’ve gotten my eyebrows waxed while I was getting my nails done? You ask three times and I’m going to do it!”

“Know Jesus’s Age! That’s what my grandma always says.”

“If I have to, fine, I’ll be in a movie.”
