Christopher Hooton was diagnosed with depression almost a decade ago, and he’s discovered that his symptoms are somewhat treatment-resistant. He’s had to find other ways to manage his mental health, and creativity plays a big role in that. On today’s episode, Christopher and I talk about why he recently transitioned from arts critic to arts creator, and how the evocative nature of The National’s music, which is the subject of his podcast, provides a jumping-off point to talk about mental health.
