In this episode I dive into the world wide phenomenon that is Netflix's Tiger King.  I invited my fellow improviser Mick Murtha on the show to talk about why we are all so fascinated with this story and how we have gotten sucked into it during this time much like the followers of Joe Exotic, Carol Baskin, and Doc Antle got sucked into their endeavors. We talk about why people are susceptible to these types of "leaders" and how we can prevent ourselves from getting in too deep.   Enjoy! --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/poppsych101/support
13 Reasons Why, a teenage drama centered around a suicide and it's direct effect on the community and the high school in that community, created huge opinions around the nation about it's portrayal of suicide & intervention, or lack thereof. Ryan and Mike dissect and explain what's going on in the show, while informing what to look for in real life when someone is considering taking their own life. Mike tends to have very strong opinions about this particular TV Series, and it takes Ryan's years of experience as a Therapist to really shed an impartial light on a very graphic depiction.  Find Us: Mental Health Podcast | Pop Psych 101 We have a Blog!

The guys give a little background into how they pick their episodes and encourage anyone to join their mental health support group if they'd like to help pick new episodes.  Ryan and Mike go deep into the motivations behind Barry Egan's anger and social anxiety issues, which they believe have a lot to do with his upbringing, and especially the treatment he receives from his 7 sisters. Ryan gives us some examples of ways to deal with social anxiety including exposure therapy. Synopsis: Today we are covering the 2002 film, Punch Drunk.

Mike and Ryan offer opinions on the glorification of serial killers in pop culture. They look at psychopathy and sociopathy through the lens of Netlfix's Mindhunter and strive to breakdown the how and why for people with Anti Social Personality Disorder. Mike and Ryan end up in a debate about whether or not, Holden Ford, is a sociopath.  Synopsis: Today, we are covering The Netflix series, Mindhunter. Based on the real-life work of former FBI Agent John Douglas. Starring Jonathan Groff as Holden Ford, Holt McCallany as Bill Tench and Anna Torv as Dr Wendy Carr  Set in the late 1970’s, Holden Ford, a hostage negotiator for the FBI, is put out to pasture and assigned the Job of teaching Cops around the country about criminal motive, with agent Bill Tench. While traveling the country, Ford’s curiosity surrounding the psyche of what he calls “sequence killers”, gets the best of him. Under the nose of his superiors, Ford starts interviewing, Ed Kemper, a man who is serving a life sentence for indescribable crimes. Ford believes he is learning valuable information that could help the FBI solve similar crimes and save lives. His partner Bill begrudgingly goes along with him, but eventually sees the same importance in the interviews as Ford does. As the FBI embraces the program, Ford, Tench and their outside consultant, Dr Wendy Carr are able to interview several of these “Sequence Killers”, and build the foundation for modern serial-killer profiling.

In This Episode: Pop Psych’s musical background Breakdown of codependent relationships through the lens of A Star Is Born Over analyzing the song “Shallow” by Lady Gaga Note: Song use and royalties through The Real Life Radio Station on Dash Radio Synopsis: Today, we are covering the 2018 film, A Star Is Born. Starring: Lady Gaga as Ally and Bradley Cooper as Jackson Maine Jackson Maine is a famous musician who drinks. Those are the two things he knows about himself. Until he meets Ally, an undiscovered talent who he falls for almost instantly. Her voice and soul speak to him and take up  part of the void he has been filling with drugs and alcohol. Most of his adult life, his older brother has been picking him up when he falls down, and now it’s ally’s turn. When her career takes off, his void seems to grow deeper and Jack drinks himself to the bottom of the bottle. After a stint in rehab, it looks like it’s possible that he could finally find some peace with himself and love Ally with no barriers. Tragically, Jack, in a vulnerable state, Jack is lead to believe that he is a burden to Ally and he should get out of her life. He’s never not had someone to pick him up when he is down, and doesn’t see a way out this time, and makes the ultimate decision. The gut-wrenching irony is that in the aftermath of Jack’s death, Ally is left to pick up the pieces.    Find Us: Mental Health Podcast | Pop Psych 101 We have a Blog! Ryan always had a Blog!

In This Episode: Ryan gives his thoughts on a Dr. Zwig, who makes some serious claims about mental health and whether or not they are a “disease” We breakdown Tidying up, and look at the reasons why people hold onto things, as well as a thorough look into Mrs Kondo herself Over Analyzing with Ryan: Ryan over analyzes the rooms in our homes and relates them to our personal mental health, and self care. Synopsis: Today, we are covering the Netflix series, “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo”.  Marie Kondo, a Japanese organizing consultant and author has taken the world by storm. Named one of Time’s most influential people in 2015, Marie wrote the book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying-Up”. Which has been a best seller in Japan and Europe, as well as being published in the United States.  Marie teaches the KonMari method of organizing, a method of gathering all belongings together by category and lumping them in a pile to get a full view of what you really have. She does not emphasize throwing items away, instead she encourages to keep that which sparks joy in your life, and to get rid of the things that do not. Now, with Marie in the United States, going to family homes that are bogged down by clutter, we start to connect with the families she is helping. we might find ourselves understanding where their clutter came from, and why it’s so hard to let go. What’s framed as a series to simply show people how to tidy up, ends up being a documentation of the families, their homes, their lives, and their motivation to hold on.    Find Us: Mental Health Podcast | Pop Psych 101 We have a Blog!

Jackson Maine & Ally in a Scene Unseen This was cut from Episode 20 - Codependency in A Star Is Born for time and because of silliness.  Ryan and Mike wish they had seen the character Ally in a group session with Jackson while he was in rehab.

Coming off an intense episode about eating disorder, Ryan and Mike jump right back into to the intensity with an episode about addiction. Not only is the subject of addiction one of the most intense mental health issues, but the movie Beautiful boy in itself is also an intense look into addiction. Ryan, having spent 6 years, previously as an addiction specialist, has since moved on from that field for many reasons, but his knowledge in this area is broad and his insight is a very important look into the therapist side of the addiction recovery process. Mike is fascinated.  Find Us: Mental Health Podcast | Pop Psych 101 We have a Blog! Ryan always had a Blog!

This week is The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, a Novel by Stephen Chbosky. We have realized that all of our episodes tend to take on the feeling of the media we happen to be covering that week; this one is no different. We cover PTSD ( Post Traumatic Stress Disorder ) in the Novel by Stephen Chbosky: The Perks Of Being A Wallflower Deep, intense and always serious for this episode, Ryan and Mike break down what PTSD really is, and how a Therapist, like Ryan, goes about treatment. We learn what kinds of Trauma can create PTSD in a mind, and how recalling those events (triggers) can take a real, and sometimes ugly toll on those that experience this kind of Mental Health Issue Ryan gives us some insider knowledge into treatment, focusing on the method known as EMDR. Ryan shares a story from his past that has some triggers for him as an adult, and how he has learned to use these methods to see his own personal patterns, and make a change to learn and grow from his experiences, both while participating in EMDR training, and the revelations that the training revealed to him. Mike is talking sometimes.   Find Us: Mental Health Podcast | Pop Psych 101 We have a Blog! Ryan always had a Blog!
