We head to the Hundred Acre Wood to find EEYORE! What treatment can Doc offer this perennially depressed donkey? Thanks for noticing us - listen now!


  • Intro
    • Thanks to all the podcasts that participated in the Pod Raid last week, much appreciated
    • Shoutout to Ocho Duro Parlay Hour - Ken, Padawn J, and Coach Duffy, along with an assortment of guests, talk sports, wrestling, entertainment, all in an hour - hence the name 
  • Background (03:24)
    • Eeyore created by A.A. Milne in Winnie-the-Pooh (October 1926)
    • An old gray donkey, he is a friend of the various creatures in the Hundred Acre Wood
    • He has a detachable tail, which he frequently loses - Owl used it at one point as a bell-pull
    • In the original books, much more apathetic and condescending towards the others
    • Disney version made him less nasty
  • Issues (06:23)
    • Depression - as in, anhedonia
    • Depression - as in, lack of acknowledgement (11:45)
    • Depression - as in, the voice of the cynic (19:15)
  • Break (25:25)
    • Plugs for Parent Quest, Petri Dish, and Meredith Finch
  • Treatment (27:01)
    • In-universe - Go for a walk in the Hundred Acre Wood, give him space to talk
    • Out of universe - discuss when they were happy, try to reignite their joy, potential use of SSRIs
  • Skit (36:02)
  • Ending (40:38)
    • Recommended reading: the original Winnie-the-Pooh stories
    • Next episodes: Reader, Uatu the Watcher, Damian Wayne
    • Review read: Super niche, super love it! I absolutely love how niche this podcast is AND how knowledgeable they are. Great chemistry, great content, great for anyone that’s into comics and analyzing personalities! - dillonh36
