In 'Eating Fried Chicken in the Shower' the comedian James Nokise encourages 8 well-known New Zealanders to open up about their mental health.

They are in a shower. They stay fully clothed. There's no water. But there is fried chicken!

We feature an excerpt from James' chat with the actor and playwright Rob Mokaraka, who was shot by police in 2009 after a confrontation he engineered to end his own life.

'Eating Fried Chicken In The Shower' is presented by James Nokise and produced by Charlie Bleakley for RNZ.

You can hear the rest of that interview on Nights on RNZ this Wednesday 12th December just after 9pm. You can also find other episodes (including interviews with Hayley Holt and Josh Thomson) wherever you get your podcasts, and at rnz.co.nz/series.
