This is an episode about depression and suicide. It was spurred on by the recent death of Justin “JewWario” Carmical, who took his own life last Thursday night. Given that both George and I suffer from suicidal depression, we felt we needed to talk to our listeners about it. We hope it helps someone, somewhere. -Dayna
The picture above was created by Made Of Fail house artist Benjamin Colón. The quote was from one of Justin’s livestreams, and it is up on YouTube here.
There is a donation drive happening to assist Justin’s widow with funeral expenses and related costs. If you can, please donate here.
