31: A House Built with Half the Wood& Tin Nails (with Lisa Anita Wegner)
Lisa Anita Wegner is a Toronto-based storyteller, performer, actor, artist, performance artist, podcaster and filmmaker. After a breakdown at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, Lisa received a diagnosis of Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD). After many years of needing a lot of experiencing exhaustion and brain fog - and just thinking she was "tired and extremely bendy," Lisa was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. Lisa chats with Shaunna about creating through her mental and physical health issues, the artistic milestones she's accomplished and her influences from Annie to Lady Gaga to David Bowie, being reflected in She's Gotta Have It and Rushmore, and the soothing rewatchability of United States of Tara, Transparent and I Love Dick. Lisa Anita Wegner's performance art piece, Intangible Adorations, will be showing as part of Workman Arts' Rendezvous With Madness Festival. In its 27th year, Rendezvous With Madness is the largest mental health festival in the world, showcasing film, art, comedy and much more, beginning on World Mental Health Day (October 10) through October 20th.

30: Starts With Me (with Mike Stroh)
Growing up in Toronto as a teenager, Mike Stroh became not just a drug user, but also a drug dealer. On top of that, he lives with anxiety, depression, OCD and ADHD and helps act as a caregiver for his brother who lives with schizophrenia. Now Mike uses his vast experiences to help facilitate mental health programs and workshops for youth and beyond through his organization, Starts With Me. He also produces the podcast, State of Mind, as well as the State of Mind Festival. Shaunna and Mike met for coffee to chat about his experiences and the difference he's been making for youth in the Toronto area. Mike talks about seeing him and his old group of friends in high school reflected in the Larry Clark film, "Kids," how much he looks up to pro-skateboarder Rodney Mullen and how much Eminem's music resonated with him when he first heard it. We also get a bit into spirituality and how paramount twelve-step work has been in his personal recovery. Find Mike online!
