Taboo Talk featuring Lady Charmaine Day www.ladycharmaineday.com Guest star: Zak Sandler. About Zak: Zak Sandler is a mental health advocate with a musical twist. He has played piano on Broadway for WICKED, MEAN GIRLS, MOTOWN, and THE COLOR PURPLE. Zak frequently speaks about his bipolar, having appeared on “This Is Actually Happening” (podcast with 44K+ plays), and “Moments of Clarity” (radio show with 1M+ listeners). He won the 2018 Young Leader Award from the New York State chapter of NAMI, and is a featured speaker with This Is My Brave and the JED Foundation. Zak’s musical, INSIDE MY HEAD, about a young man learning to work with his bipolar, premiered at NY Theatre Barn and was a semi-finalist at the O’Neill Theater’s National Music Theater Conference. It will be touring the US in 2020. He is also creating and hosting a docu-series / podcast, “Insanely Talented,” that explores the link between mental conditions and creativity among celebrity and up-and-coming artists. Zak no longer uses the phrases "mental illness" or "bipolar disorder", because he feels they imply there's something wrong with him. He prefers the terms “mental conditions” and simply, “bipolar”. Our words have the power to end the stigma! Zak is a Yale, B.A., Music, 2008 alumni. For more information on Zak visit his website: www.zaksandler.com
