The Z’entonnoirs


“Are you ready to change your outlook on mental illness?”

In Roubaix, on the premises of the cultural centre La Condition Publique, a radio program that’s rich, funny, free and one of a kind has been recorded every Monday for the past eight years: les Z’entonnoirs.

The program’s presenters are men and women who are suffering from psychological problems, and some nurses. They define the program’s editorial line, conduct the interviews, present, comment and debate, together building a veritable radiophonic moment. One never knows who’s the patient, who is the nurse, and everyone has their word.
