Bob unravels the historical details of how this tragedy came about and concludes with a profound critique of its consequences. It’s a fascinating master class masquerading as talk radio.
MY MOST IMPORTANT SHOW EVER! I spend the hour by myself talking to you about psychiatric drugs and rational psychopharmacology.

Finally get an overall understanding about how this multi-billion dollar industry stands on feet of quicksand, and we’re the ones sinking into it.
