It's time for another thematic episode - how do support systems impact rehabilitation of comic villains? And what techniques can we apply to the real world to reduce recidivism? This one gets a bit heady - strap in & listen now!
- Thanks to new Patron Dan
- Message from fan Jacob - “your podcast helped me get through some really s**tty times in the last couple weeks. I’m just wrapping up my undergrad degree in psychology, wanting to do something with addiction, and Doc’s way of speaking about psychiatry & practicing has genuinely reaffirmed why I wanted to take this path. When I didn’t really feel like studying for my exams I’d find an episode where you examined a character with said disorders or behaviors I was being tested on”
- New review - EmeraldGod - Doc and Anthony break down superheroes to a level that makes you go hmmm. They allow us to dive into the minds of characters to not only reveal a little about the character and how they see the world, but they also open them up and show us how we can make them more relevant and real. In a world full of would-be icons, this show helps bring modern-day mythologies upfront and personal. Thanks, guys for a great show. I am hooked.
