John Moe

May 14, 2020 • 7:00 pm

Depression is an incredibly common and isolating disease experienced by millions, yet often stigmatized by society. For years, John Moe, a critically-acclaimed public radio personality, struggled with depression. It plagued his family and claimed the life of his brother in 2007. As he faced his own illness, he began to see similar behavior patterns and coping mechanisms in his conversations with others. Recognizing the tremendous comfort in talking about these experiences and the unique power of humor, he launched “The Hilarious World of Depression” podcast.

Published during Mental Health Awareness month, The Hilarious World of Depression is a memoir of Moe’s own journey, revealing more than he’s ever discussed on the podcast. The book also shares funny stories and insights from his interviews with comics, musicians, writers, and public figures who have dealt with depression, including Andy Richter, John Green, Margaret Cho, Jenny Lawson, Hannah Hart, Maria Bamford, and Peter Sagal, among others.

Throughout, Moe brings depression’s universal themes to light, including struggles with identity, lack of understanding of the symptoms, the challenges of work-life, self-medicating, the fallout of the disease in the lives of loved ones, the tragedy of suicide, and the hereditary aspects of the disease.
