APM Studios launches new weekly podcast Mood Ring - bringing listeners a new spin on mental health

Press Release · St Paul, MN, USA ·

Mood Ring, a new series from APM Studios hosted by author and journalist Anna Borges, premieres April 28 with new episodes available every Thursday.

“Mood Ring” takes an empathetic and realistic approach to self care. The podcast shares practical and creative ways to improve our lives, with each episode focusing on one new way we can cope with our feelings, our baggage, or the world around us.

Remarked Borges: “I have a love-hate relationship with self-care. People often prescribe it as this one-size-fits-all antidote, when in reality, taking care of our mental health is personal and complicated. Because of that, a lot of self-care advice can make us feel broken if it doesn’t work for us the way it’s ‘supposed’ to—and that’s if it’s even accessible to us in the first place. We wanted to make a self-care show grounded in reality, full not only of actionable takeaways, but also honest conversations about the struggles, shortcomings, and privileges of self-care.”
