EP. 213 — Neal Brennan Returns

To kick off Mental Health Awareness Month, Jameela is joined by comedian Neal Brennan (Netflix’s Crazy Good, Chappelle’s Show) to reflect on his personal exploration of shame, fear, anger, and how discovering spirituality changed his work. They talk (and occasionally squabble) about art as expression and ambition, having the relatability factor as a modern performer, and the commodification of sadness and trauma.
