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”
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.
