    This is My Brave - With Jennifer Marshall - @BipolarMomLife @ThisIsMyBrave

    Jennifer Marshall used to spend her days as an agency recruiter for creatives. Her story took a dramatic turn when she experienced a manic episode. Over 12 years ago she suffered two manic episodes. After a series of doctor’s appointments she was officially diagnosed Bipolar Disorder – type 1.

    She is now a wife and mother of two young children, whom she loves dearly. She began blogging on Bipolar Mom Life, telling her story about being a mother with Bipolar Disorder. She was hospitalized four times within five years – two before her diagnosis was reached, and two more because she was attempting to shield her infant son (during postpartum psychosis) and her unborn daughter – and all were due to the fact that she was unmedicated at the time.

    Jennifer has grown after being diagnosed and learning to live with Bipolar Disorder. She has worked hard to find the right medications and a great therapist. She now strives to help others live with mental illness through her nonprofit organization, This Is My Brave, a platform where people share their stories live on stage through poetry, original music, comedy, and essay. The performances are professionally videotaped and are available for viewing on the This Is My Brave YouTube Channel. To date, This is My Brave has produced 34 unique shows across the US. The show has recently expanded internationally with two shows in Australia!

    Purple Flags - With Ra Avis and Bill Friday - @Rarasaur and @ThatManFriday

    We tried to talk about the origin of purple flags. I forgot if we did. I know Ra and I were saying that red flags sometimes look purple to us because we don't want them to be red. Bill decided that we should ask the guy who wrote me an email back two years later if he was going to reply in another two years. This podcast was recorded from a closet in Long Beach, California. Bill and Ra are both poets and writers. @Rarasaur and @ThatManFriday on Twitter

    "Ra lives and loves in Los Angeles and the internet, where frightfully wondrous things happen. She is a once-upon-a-time inmate, a reluctantly-optimistic widow, an exponential storyteller, and also basically a dinosaur. Her story is a long one, but the short version is she (probably) loves you. @Rarasaur"

    Fictionary... 8 Megapixel Artist... Bloody Awful Poet, Bill Friday is a recently-published bender of Words, Voice, and Stuff. He is a former internet talk show host, and long-time Citizen Journalist. Currently, Bill is a part of the Writer’s Room for a television pilot in pre-production.

    He communicates with the outside world through his own little web territory ("
