Mental health awareness month special episode w/Lisa Lampanelli, Nick Scopoletti, and Beau McDowell of the Losers with a Dream podcast

Nick Scopoletti returns to the show — this time with fellow standup Beau McDowell, and their life coach, retired comic Lisa Lampanelli. Their podcast “Losers with a Dream” features conversations between Nick and Beau about their struggles toward comedy success…and just becoming better people. Then, Lisa weighs in with both life tips and comedy advice. Their show stresses the importance of working toward better mental health as a part of an overall strategy for success.

We asked them to share some of their personal experiences around seeking professional help and what it feels like to finally get it. Don’t worry, we share our own experiences as well. Nobody should feel bad about getting help.

We loved doing this episode, and we hope that you’ll find it helpful. (Our standard explicit language warning definitely applies here.)
