About Squirrel Dialogues
A weekly video series that discusses topics in mental health and wellbeing.
Squirrel Dialogues is a series of videos on YouTube, created by Evan Wagoner-Lynch. Released each week, the videos feature Wagoner-Lynch and a squirrel puppet discussing various mental health topics in a compassionate and meaningful way. As a trauma-informed artist and writer, Wagoner-Lynch addresses topics such as forgiving oneself, active listening, and loneliness.
In 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic began, Wagoner-Lynch posted the first Squirrel Dialogues video to YouTube. About a year later, the videos caught traction on TikTok, where the account @squirrel_dialogues now has over 150,000 followers and one million likes.
Squirrel Dialogues was created in an effort to move towards a more loving world, through compassion and understanding. The videos have encouraged viewers to engage and open up about their own mental health struggles.
