There were also some questions about why we invited Jane Fonda as a guest. We believe in the power of personal stories helping others. That is the power of Cracked Up. Darrell is not an “expert” but his story is helping millions of people. Bessel van der Kolk says, “I am only an expert because of what I learn from trauma survivors, they are the real experts.”

“....LIFE-CHANGING AND LIFE-SAVING...”
— CATHY MALCHIODI, PHD, TRAUMA EXPERT
"Cracked Up, The Evolving Conversation is a deeply moving, powerful and invaluable experience for anyone who has experienced trauma or cares about anyone who has experienced trauma—all of us. Each conversation (and conversation participant) has touched me deeply, been revelatory and has enriched me/my life personally and professionally.”
—Karen O’Brien, MSW
"Listening in on Cracked Up, The Evolving Conversation is, at it’s core, a way of witnessing how friends and colleagues who truly understand trauma, can really attune to one another, and be models for healing relationships. Yes, we can learn the science of ACEs, but when we are mirrored true compassion, we can start to practice it in our own lives.”
—Drew Factor, Internist
"I just wanted to thank you all for the webinar to celebrate the Netflix premier of Cracked Up. What a warm, personable and honest conversation the four of you shared together and with the community of people that joined through the webinar format. I was delighted to be a part of it and watch as all of us really healed and learned from each of your stories. Thank you especially to Darrell for sharing your story to start this conversation of healing for all of us. Thank you Michelle for your skill of putting his story together on film."
“Esrick’s Cracked Up has provided both a life-changing and life-saving experience for those who have survived the often “hidden hurt” of childhood trauma. Now, in their new series, Cracked Up, The Evolving Conversation, we are all fortunate to have the rare privilege to learn from not only the film’s star Darrell Hammond, but also its director and trauma experts.”
—Cathy Malchiodi, PhD, trauma expert
"Your Evolving Conversation Episode 1 with Darrell, Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, and Michelle really touched me. I just began seeking treatment for trauma I experienced in my past and it was comforting to feel like I’m part of a community.”
"I would like to sincerely and deeply thank you for the first session. It is really rare to have these conversations with survivors and professionals in an equal talk and understanding of the many effects of trauma”
“I love Cracked Up, The Evolving Conversations! I have never been a part of anything so real, honest, intimate, and inspiring. Episode 3 should be a master class in holding a loving space for someone when they are upset. I can’t wait for the next one!”
