Who are we? What is a human? Be enthralled as Matthew Whoolery and I focus on his adventures among the African Himba. See what earlier human lifestyles can tell us about who we really without the confounding influence of modern "civilization."
The great new film is Letters from Generation Rx. The heroic maker and my guest is Kevin Miller. Along with other psychiatric reformers, we are also getting together at a marvelous conference for the public March 3-5, 2016 in Florida. Learn about Kevin, his stunning film, and the conference in this stellar hour.
Meet Joanne Cacciatore for a beautiful hour. As I have been, you will be a better person for it. From grief to love, we share thoughts with you on what really matters. This archive is a treasure chest.
My guest Ted Chabasinski, lawyer and psychiatric reformer, and I start out talking about the FDA’s recent decision that ECT is so safe that shock treatment never has to be tested. Really! We then share heart-felt thoughts about life and politics.
Do we need “drug control” rather than “gun control?” Should people on psych drugs be prevented from owning guns? My guest Bart Billings, PhD, who Is a warrior on behalf of warriors, raises these and other thought-provoking questions.
Welcome the New Year with me and my guest Michael Cornwall sharing personal stories and thoughts about what makes for a good life. Too much anger or numbness? Too much guilt, shame and anxiety? Not enough love? We want to inspire you to make the most of the coming year.
Australian/American psychologist and lawyer Dr. Bob Jacobs presents a radical approach to parenting and education in dramatic contrast to what those words usually mean. He starts from the premise that people are essentially good and non-violent, and ultimately know what's good for themselves. It makes for very interesting back and forth about human nature and practical applications to parent-teacher-child relationships.
Lyle Murphy is the founder of Alternative to Meds Center in Sedona, Arizona, the only licensed residential treatment program that focuses on psychiatric drug withdrawal. Lyle tells his unique, courageous story about overcoming psychosis and then explains how his center works and how others can build one. I hope this show will inspire people around the world to think about what they can do to start a residential center for psychiatric drug withdrawal. It is one of the most important needs in the field of health today.
Nightmarish social control becomes a medical reality. My guest Michael Cornwall blows the whistle on probable FDA approval of a lobotomizing antipsychotic drug with a microchip that tells authorities whether you have really swallowed it. The brutal personal and societal implications are staggering.
