Author and social activist Deanna Zandt (“Share This!”) gets together with author and weirdo Alice Bradley (“Let’s Panic About Babies”) to talk about depression, anxiety, and all the other ways our brains can play tricks on us. They’ll also discuss what helps, whether it’s medication, meditation, or binge-watching Netflix while eating an entire wheel of cheese. Join Alice and Deanna every other week as they amuse each other and the guests they’ve managed to trick into joining them. It’s all going to be okay. Probably.

Worth your time!!
The League of Awkward Unicorns is a must listen to!
Alice and Deanna are the perfect hosts to honest, funny and much-needed discussions on how we manage to manage every day. A refreshing way to talk about mental health!
Really fun listen whether or not you consider yourself awkward or unicorned. We really enjoy the hosts' unique but relatable and often hilarious perspective on self examination and dealing with others. Haven't heard any other podcasts like it - give it a try!!
Witty friends normalizing mental illness!
Get in on the ground floor of this great new podcast! Alice and Deanna talk about mental illness with a frankness and calmness that is very refreshing. Listening to League of A. U. is like spending time with a couple of your smartest and funniest friends who know your personality quirks and love you anyway. The interviews are great and so are the topics. Also I love that they have a number you can call and leave a message and they emphasize NO ONE will pick up so you won't have anxiety when calling in. I'm looking forward to listening to more from Alice and Deanna. Highly recommended!
