Episode 88 is Part 2 of my conversation with Jes Skolnik. As I
mentioned last week, Jes writes for Bandcamp Daily, the music
journalism arm of the Greatest Music Distribution Platform of all
time. Besides being an incredibly gifted music journalist, they are
also a musician, a trauma survivor, former addict, and a sexual
assault survivor. This week we talk about toxic jobs, the journey
from freelancer to senior editor, their struggle with drugs and
depression, and what they do for self-care!
CONTENT WARNING: this episode contains frank and difficult discussions about sexual assault, drug use, and suicidal ideation.
