In their second Spooktober episode, the girls are talking about… death! Don’t worry, it’s not as scary as it sounds. Bonnie gives an overview of various rituals around death, including how other cultures bury their dead, and then Anna gives a look into the origins of Halloween and compares that to a more specifically death-related holiday, the Mexican Dia de Muertos or Day of the Dead
Happy Spooktober, Sipsters! This week, Bonnie is telling us the story of the Salem witch trials, including how it all went down and who all the major payers were. Then Anna comes in to talk about some of the possible theories about what could have caused it all, including more psychological things like trauma or hysteria, as well as more medical explanations like diseases or fungus!
Expansion Pack Volume One! After mentioning these concepts in other episodes, Bonnie and Anna are explaining more details about defense mechanisms and cognitive distortions. Bonnie tells us about defense mechanisms, which originated in Freudian theory, and Anna, who is VERY tired, tells us about cognitive distortions, which are part of CBT. Also, they have family visiting, so there may be some guest background noises!
This week, Anna and Bonnie chat about memory, specifically how it works and how it can sometimes fail. They talk about some good brain stuff, explain short and long term memory, warn about common memory errors, and even chat about what we can do to keep our memories sharp! They also talk about weird things like kuru and ganglions, because it’s their podcast and they can talk about whatever they want.
