A magnificent conversation with journalist and scientist Robert Whitaker, author of Mad in America and Anatomy of an Epidemic. Bob and I unleash our imaginations and thoughts over the range of psychiatric issues from the way the drug companies and organized psychiatry have imposed an entirely false narrative on the world to how doctors end up telling life-destroying lies to their patients like “you have a biochemical imbalance and need drugs.” This Dr. Peter Breggin Hour will inspire you to open your minds about and maybe even to inspire you to voice your own opinions about evildoing in the world. And maybe you don’t need any inspiration from me and Bob, in which case I hope you will simply bask in the enjoyment of a very thoughtful and ultimately uplifting conversation. Join us!
And also, watch me on the HBO two-part documentary “I Love You, Now Die.” The first part aired last night (July 9, 2019 at 8 pm NY time) and the second part tonight (July 10, same time). It’s about the Michelle Carter case of the girl who supposedly texted her boyfriend to death and it gives me, and a number of other, the opportunity to comment on important issues about psychiatry and life in America today.
