Episode 2 – Samuel Maguire

Just A Spoonful is a fortnightly conversation where the guests are living with a chronic illness/disability and the host is exhausted. We are young and fully sick.

My guest this episode is Brisbane writer Samuel Maguire whose work has been published in Stilts, The Lifted Brow, and Scum Mag. He is living with Bipolar Type 1 Disorder and anxiety and uses The Lord of The Rings in place of sleep medication. We talk psychotic breaks, The Truman Show, and mums reading your sad blog posts.

Sam’s blog is Skydekkerix, where he writes memoir and “short fiction about how society done his nerves up wretched”.
