This week, Kate and Doree share all of their favorite spots in Los Angeles – from beloved bookstores to the most random place you can spot a celeb.
Then they welcome New York Times best-selling novelist and essayist, Esmé Wang. She discusses being diagnosed with Schizoaffective Disorder, the stigmas and common misconceptions surrounding mental illness, how she approaches self-care, and her newest book, The Collected Schizophrenias.
