Male Friendship, Depression, and Grief with Andrew Cotto


Dr. Dan welcomes journalist and author Andrew Cotto to discuss the rarely covered topics of male friendship, depression, grief, and mental health. 

As a journalist, Andrew is a contributor to The New York Times, La Cucina Italiana, the Good Men Project, Rachael Ray In Season, Parade, Men’s Journal, Rolling Stone, Condé Nast Traveler, Italy magazine, Salon, and numerous other publications. 

On this timely and important episode, Andrew and Dr. Dan have a moving discussion about bonds men share and male vulnerabilities. Dr. Dan talks to Andrew about his new book Pasta Mike, a fictionalized account about the real-life experience of losing his childhood best friend. The novella was inspired by Andrew’s poignant essay on TALKSPACE about this life-altering experience and will help all listeners struggling with loss and emotional trauma.
