Ever wonder if your favorite comic book character needed therapy? The answer to that question is most likely yes, looking at you Batman! Capes on the Couch covers the mental health component of your favorite caped crusaders and views your favorite comics through the lens of psychology! Can’t overstate how unique and well researched this show is. There are a lot of comic book podcasts out there but none like this!
As someone with a big interest in psychology and mental health along with superheroes it’s awesome to see these 2 things combined into great conversations! Again another great idea for a pod! Also what a name!
Capes On the Couch - Where Comics Get CounselingThanks so much for the review! Funny enough, the name was originally a placeholder until we could think of something better, but we couldn't figure out anything else. 3 years later and it's stuck hah…
Capes on the Couch has literally gotten me through the trails of the last year. It's be rough all around but I know I can get a weekly dose of comics, voices, sass and puns and I look forward to it every week. There have been some truly moving conversations and I, for one, appreciate it. Keep it up, love you guys!
Capes On the Couch - Where Comics Get CounselingThanks Jeanine! And we love all your support - looking forward to bringing you more excellent content this year :)
CAPES ON THE COUCH is one of my favorite podcasts for the unique perspective and insight they bring to the superhero genre. I haven't heard another podcast go so deep into the psychological arguments around these characters. One of the most informative and entertaining podcasts around. Did I mention there are skits as well?
Capes On the Couch - Where Comics Get CounselingThanks Ryan! We love having fun with the skits - glad we can entertain and educate you!
Capes On the Couch obviously shares love for comic books and mental health which comes across to the listener. Analyzing what makes them tick, everything from deep cut characters to the poster heros to even clones is explored. It's a fun and fascinating listen for everyone, especially fans of the superhero genre. Give them a listen and subscribe now!
Combining psychiatry and Super Heroes! What a great concept! I listened to the Maxwell Lord episode and loved it. Definitely going to go through the backlog. Would recommend completely! Check it out!
If you want a a unique insight into your favorite characters then subscribe and tune in. As a huge comic book reader this an interesting perspective on heroes, villains and everyone in between. A channel with a massive YouTube reach should reach out and makes shorts based on these. It’s easily a million dollar idea. And someone hit Marvel up because Dr. Issues needs to set up shop by Night Nurse.
An awesome time! Hit subscribe.
Hilarious and I live their unique take on comic book super hero’s!!
Always a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ show! Great concept and extremely entertaining!
A really interesting listen. I don't think I've come across this approach to comics before, & I have to say it's pretty cool to think about all these super familiar characters from an angle no one is coming at them from, while also normalising talks around mental health. Gotta love a multifaceted podcast!
Super unique show. Give it one listen and you'll be hooked.
Very unique podcast that take a look at the land of superheroes through a different perspective! Check it out! - #ODPH
Capes On the Couch - Where Comics Get CounselingThanks so much for the review! We appreciate it :)
These guys are amazing. The way they discuss comics clearly shows how passionate they feel towards both comics and mental illness destigmatization. Each episode is covered differently, even despite any character similarities. They never fail to release a great episode.
Capes On the Couch - Where Comics Get CounselingThanks so much for the love! We do our best not to repeat ourselves, even if characters have similar issues. Looking forward to keeping up the good work! :)
Far from your typical comics based podcast. Delves into the psyche of comic book characters and even had them in therapy. This id a great listen, I highly reccomend and endorse
Well worth listening for the entertainment value of comic book superheroes, but highly informative when it comes to mental health. Anthony and Doc Issues are on too of their game here....analyses and skits make for a perfect mix!
Such a great listen, stacking layers on the foundations of characters I THOUGHT I knew like the back of my hand.
A unique perspective on the Super Hero genre. Refreshing and fun discussion that goes deep into the psychology of the superheroes you know and love. Fascinating listen!
Such a unique show. I've listened to a few now and will be coming back for more!
