I stayed in a house last Christmas that had Red Zone and it has been pretty much impossible to watch a normal game ever since. And I like the Broncos, so it's not like the team is the problem right now.

Well...yeah! I'm sure intermittent mumbling, 'Wow that's really messed up..' might discourage repeat business

Having any interest in psychology unfortunately is like Keith's question of 'Do you like The Smiths?' It's an admission to a flaw, but personally I think everyone should have some form of talk therapy, at some point in their life. Also, I'm fucked up in the head.

Nice post. What kind of therapist are you? What's your forte? What interests you most? What's up with neurotic people liking cats? Don't bill me, bro!

I'm in grad school for therapy so I don't have everything all together to bill you quite yet. I'm going to be a mental health counselor. These are the people on the ground so to speak doing counseling, interventions, therapy as opposed to psychologists, psychiatrists and social workers who are able to do more stuff that isn't directly related to patient care. Stuff like research, clinical privileges, and other stuff that is VERY uninteresting to me.
I am hoping to work with veterans with PTSD, possibly rape survivors, or helping children with special needs adapt to their environments.
I really don't get the cat thing. If I were to take a guess I would say that they are less of a burden on the person than a dog is? Cats can mostly take care of themselves so they know that something is always there for them but they don't have to walk it every day. Fuck if I know theres probably a research article about it.

So more applied stuff as opposed to theory? That's cool.

Dreaming up and conducting tests would be fun though. Like gathering up people who are prone to religious faith, aliens, and ghosts and filling their blood stream with radiation picture stuff and seeing what parts of their brain light up when you show them symbols and such. I find those things fascinating.

Right. Maybe we'd know a little about you if you included some small talk into the equation.

It's good to hear that some people could relate to my anxieties, and I hope I didn't scare anyone away from seeing a therapist if you need to see one. The only reason I talked about my difficulties with seeing a therapist is that I've seen enough that I've learned most of the skills they could teach me (Both from being in therapy and from having therapists for parents.).

I hope it wasn't too much of a downer episode, but part of why I like to talk about those things is because I have actually gotten to a much more comfortable place emotionally. It was always helpful to me whenever I would hear someone else talk about their struggles with anxiety and depression. Not only to know that I wasn't the only one, but that it's something you can totally gain control over.

I don't always talk about these things at length, but it was a fun, open show where the discussion just lead that way. I promise that I don't just sit around talking about my depression with everyone I meet.

I had an awesome time doing the podcast and did a show at Kabin that night which was a ton of fun. So I don't want anyone to think that I'm just some sad sack that mopes around.

Unless that's like your thing and that makes you want to have sex with me. Then come down to Philly sometime and I'll tell you stories about times I drank too much after having a bad show then we'll make sweet, depression-fueled love.


EDIT: Also, I just want to point out that while the discussion on depression and anxiety was serious, I was also trying to be funny in a lot of the other parts. So you don't have to take my position on spaying stray cats with the same weight you took my position on overeating and feeling like shit.

I loved James Hesky as a guest. Very relatable and nice. The depressed comic is a cliché and they've had many on the show. James was one of my favorite depressed comics. I think there are many women who'd be interested in a guy like him--except now that I think of it, most of them are young depressed quirky girls. Could be too much depression and angst.

I'm not sure if Bill is capable of irony, but on the small chance he is - hilarious!

You really are funny, Bill! Please tell more jokes like these. They make me laugh.

Nope. You were a perfect fit for the KATG guest chair, I liked the ep a lot and I hope they have you back on soon.
