In this episode the pot calls the kettle … well, pot. Listen in as the docs discuss marijuana regarding its medical history and the research that indicates the potential benefits and risks. “Weed” through the episode and figure out what you’re “ganja” do as you ponder the use of marijuana medically or recreationally (I hope we weren’t too “blunt”).
In this episode the docs talk about how the recent election might influence your Thanksgiving holiday with those closest to you. Learn what the experts are saying about how to keep the ones you love .. well, the one’s you love. Also, hear about our Thanksgivings. So, pass the bird (the turkey one) and settle in for an episode that won’t leave you sleepy like Tryptophan if Tryptophan actually made you sleepy.
Join the docs for a full episode of Doctors’ Notes where we tackle three listener’s queries. Topics span with one’s relationship with food, identity, trust, assertive communication in relationships, and find out our answer to the question, “How do I get my partner to tell me how many people s/he has slept with?” Listen in and don’t forget to write in your questions to us on Twitter (@QuipsFreudian) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/FreudianQ/).
We are not here to Poli“tic” you off, we are here to discuss how psychology converges with the political mind. Learn about why we have strong emotions connected with whom we support, how our morals connect to all of this, and of course what neuroscience and brain studies are indicating.
So … We’re not sure we can really label this episode “special” or “spooky,” but you will hear the docs having fun diving into Halloween and fear. And boy-o-boy is Dr. P afraid of everything horror, especially the meatball pizza scene from “A Nightmare on Elm Street.”
