About This List

These are the episodes chosen by Kevin Allison for the theme of *Explore the Human Psyche* in honor of the 10th anniversary of the RISK! podcast.
  1. The personal shadow is created as a normal part of development, as we learn what behaviors, values and feelings are not acceptable in our family, school, or religious tradition. In order to be accepted by needed significant others, parts of ourselves have to be split off from consciousness and are therefore relegated to the unconscious as shadow. A major part of becoming more whole is discovering these exiled parts of ourselves and integrating the feelings they carry. Deb, Lisa and Joseph discuss some of the ways that shadow can be confronted and given a place at the table of consciousness.   The Dream: I’m in my Dad’s wood shop, in the basement of the home where I grew up. I need to unscrew a panel on a metal box, and I’m finding the right screwdriver. The first one I pick up is too small, Mom hands me a better-sized one, a Phillips head with four fins. Somehow it is a very large size, and I notice the fins on the head are rusty. I sand away some of the rust on one of the fins, but when I come to the second, it is covered in masking tape. Instead of peeling off the tape, I try to sand away the masking tape, but the sandpaper continues to sand into the screwdriver fin itself, which is somehow made of corrugated cardboard. I am puzzled. I feel a pit in my stomach, like I’ve made a mistake. I find that only the first of the four fins is made of metal, the rest are cardboard. I “undo” (like you would on a computer) to get back to where I was after sanding the metal fin. The cardboard fins are intact again and I’m relieved. I then unscrew and open the panel of the box.
  2. Mike tells Sarah how the myth of meddling wives serves to exonerate terrible husbands. Digressions include “50 Shades of Grey,” Marie Antoinette and the end of the 1960s.

  3. This week's episode is a bumper addition and it is not for the faint-hearted. We have the amazing and brilliant The London Vagabond in the studio with us. The London Vagabond is a self taught analogue photographer with no formal education. His work often submits to voyeuristic tendencies and a desire to document the everyday to the obscure. His interest in photography stems from being a prolific graffiti vandal, during this time he began to keep a visual diary of his travels and the characters he encountered along the way. More recently his public work has been focused on nudity and fetishisms although he continues to shoot the overlooked, the avoided, the lurkers and the people that society purposefully likes to ignore. The London Vagabond's background has created a non-conformist and unorthodox approach to his work which manifests through the images he produces. In his own words he is 'consistently inconsistent'.'F**ks Given' with Come Curious presents an honest and candid exploration of their guests’ sexual histories, from the first f**k to the best f**k and even the bad, average and comical ones in between. Each episode is an uncensored look at what’s gone on beneath the sheets with a variety of coveted guests in a bid to break the stigma around sexual histories and specifically the ‘number’ taboo. Presented by Come Curious, change-makers in the sex and body positivity space, 'F**ks Given' aims to open up the conversation around our sexual past, asking us to celebrate all the f**ks you gave because they’re the ones that made you who you are. You can follow Come Curious on Instagram / Twitter / Youtube  This is a Studio71 production.Producer - Jack Claramunt.Exec Producer - Tom Payne & Jody Smith.Production Support - Phie McKenzie & Rebecca Dowell Studio71 is a Red Arrow Studios Company.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
  4. How can you be sure that the things you know are true… are actually true? We have access to more information than any humans in history but we can't process it on our own. In fact, almost all of what we know comes from others. We come to rely on people and institutions to tell us what to believe and not to believe. And it turns out there are huge consequential differences in how Americans form those relationships, relationships which serve as the building blocks for how we shape our own views of the world. So what happens when someone tries to manipulate that trust? If you ask David Roberts, you need only look at the current conservative movement to get your answer.Email us at WITHpod@gmail.comTweet using #WITHpodRead more at nbcnews.com/whyisthishappening
