Another great episode. However the link between thought and feeling and how the former influences the latter could have been highlighted more.

John, could you learn to not speak over Tom so much. It's like you feel the need to get the last word in, even when you have nothing to say. should have let Tom speak more about what he's going through and how he's dealing with it. It was so irritating listening to you interrupt him
