Zara Barrie & Dayna Troisi

If you’re a self-identified "crazy b*tch" who is ready to deep dive into the harrowing and hilarious issues of depression, OCD, eating disorders, party girl pain, binge eating shame, self-medicating, blackouts, addiction, drinking anxiety, the eerie side effects of psychotropic drugs, and your paralyzing bouts of heart palpitations — welcome to the dark side. We are your people and girlZ interrupteD is most definitely for you.

Your hosts Zara Barrie and Dayna Troisi are crazy, medicated, and ready to party. And they're here to let you know that, no, babe, you’re not the only person who has blacked out and woken up next to your toxic ex whilst innocently mixing a new antidepressant with too many tequila shots. So take your meds (as prescribed), pour a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, put on your favorite matchy-matchy pajamas, and join us every Saturday at midnight. Now that you have GirlZ InterrupteD you’ll NEVER have to shame-spiral alone again.
