Ep. 64 "I Am Not Afraid, For I Was Born to Do This" with Meredith Hopping

Instructions for Living a Life

For our 64th episode, we're excited to welcome St. Louis, Missouri stand-up comedian, Meredith Hopping, who takes us on an often hilarious, always thoughtful exploration of living with anxiety, appreciating psychiatric care, and wrestling with the church over fear, language, purity culture, and shame. Meredith is fiercely honest, with her bravery and clarity often expressed through humor, and this episode casts that honesty across a wide spectrum. Whether we're talking about divorce, healthy embodiment and sexuality, talking with kids about sex and bodies, postpartum depression, or being REALLY forthright about what birth actually entails, the conversation is a rich and rewarding one.

95 - Meredith Hopping

Matt F Basler's Podcast

Meredith is something of a comedy mentor to me. She was there for my very first open mic, and I feel that she sees me as a son. Meredith is always being funny and saying funny things. I hope that someday she will look at me and say "Wow. The student has surpassed the master" just before she closes her eyes and drifts into death. Here is her twitter ----> https://twitter.com/meredithhopping I'm @mattfbasler every dang place.

Meredith Hopping - Mental Health Matters

Mental Health Matters with Tom Duff

Timing is everything. It wasn’t until her senior year in college, as she was wrapping up her studies as a theater major with an emphasis in opera, that Meredith Hopping found her voice. But it had nothing to do with being a soprano, alto or any range in between. And at first, it wasn’t a solo discovery. One of Meredith’s professors had taken note of how funny she was and mentioned it to her. A few years later, when Meredith turned 30 and made a list of 30 things to do, she decided to put the observation to the test. It was perfect timing. At the end of June 2017, nearly eight months after the 2016 election and five months after her youngest child was born, Meredith – who experienced postpartum depression and anxiety after giving birth to all three of her children – stood at a new threshold: continue to go inward into a rabbit hole of depression, or stand up and do something tangible. Using her faith as her guide, Meredith chose to stand, at of all things, an open-mic comedy night. She nailed it, and her voice has been harmonious ever since. In this episode of Mental Health Matters, Director Tom Duff, MSW, LCSW and Meredith talk about how admitting her postpartum struggles as a granddaughter, daughter and ex-wife of pastors and sharing her humor on stage have helped her discover her voice and a renewed sense of self that can be, at times, a laughing matter.
