A collage about schizophrenia.

Note: Some of this program might be triggering, disturbing, or disorienting to listen to. It's probably not a good idea to listen to it while driving or using heavy machinery.

It is our intention to communicate an experience in the hopes that those so afflicted will know that they are not alone in it.

If you wish to donate to our ministry you can go to nationalcynical.com/donate or become a patreon at patreon.com/nationalcynical or consider entering in a dollar amount for this program which goes back into the project.

All derived material in this program is used fairly, accredited, and transformed (remixed / fragmented / re-contextualized / re-worked) for the purpose of education, cultural reference, and to artistically capture the cultural conversation about the subject matter during the time of this program's creation.

This researched program is the result of an artistic and creative process, which can be documented, and is meant to be heard, and taken in its entirety. Payment is not a prerequisite fee in exchange for content in order to get this package but is considered a voluntary donation toward supporting the creative work and expense behind the program.

Mixed and compiled by Phineas Narco for the Needle in the Red radio series (KFJC); post-produced, a bit, from the original version. See the 'about' field on individual track for credits and sources used within this collage.
