This week, we have an episode that comes with a trigger warning.

TRIGGER WARNING FOR: self-harm, suicide.

Ankit Ohja, film critic, filmmaker, and videographer who found himself struggling to just survive each day during the lockdown. The uncertainty of the global event and the seemingly unending restrictions in his country, as the government struggled to get the virus under control. Ankit felt the mental toll of the lockdown, the same one that millions of fellow creators coped with around the globe.

Our conversation today touches on a subject that so many have experienced, but also a topic that we have not discussed openly in creator spaces. Ankit's story is one that will spark so many conversations or it should about mental health, creators, and the pandemic.

Ankit describes himself as, "mostly a video producer, content creator, film critic, and features editor-at-large. Sometimes, a filmmaker. Constantly frank about depression and often insufferable with dad jokes. Movies are a part of me."
