About Us

Not Crazy is the mental health podcast for people who hate mental health podcasts. The show is designed to explore all facets of our mental health -- without all the psycho-babble. The hosts, Gabe and Jackie, know first-hand that people don’t generally wonder about the "state of their mental health," but might very well worry about whether or not they are crazy. Hosted by Gabe Howard and Jackie Zimmerman.
