at location 1:42 of the recording, the discussion was referencing anti-depressants. whether they can alter your moods. well I did take some a few years back and the doctor kept changing them because they didn't agree with my system. I had dizziness, tired, chest pain etc, and it went on. they told me that I had to take it long enough to change the chemical balance in my brain. the chemical makeup of how you think and how your brain functions. I didn't like that. Lexapro was the best because it was very very mild that took over it took a long time for it to take effect but that's beside the point. there was a time before this I was in a program to lose weight after the birth of my son with a physician. It was routine for them to give their patients medication to curb craving carbs. its easier to lose weight and not Fin fin. Right?! Well, after a while my husband said every time I took that pill I was not easy to get along with. I began to notice. yeah, every time I became very angry. I couldn't function with my family or my daily routine. everything irritated me. I would get irate at the smallest noises or interruptions. Things noone should be upset over. It was like I was possessed. funny that I didn't realize until he brought it to my attention. I took these pills, called Wellbutrin, back to my doctor, told her the negative effect it was having on me. she said 'wow, yes this is a antidepressant pill that makes you not crave carbs. however, if you truly have depression, this antidepressant tends to have that effect'. I was amazed. I worked in California Department of Corrections system for 14 years. And for about two years I was a sergeant. The inmates incarcerated there take medications. too many if you ask me. And they were giving out Wellbutrin to a lot of them. I had a conversation with one of the inmates and I asked him if this Wellbutrin caused him to feel angry and out of control. He answered yes. To make matters worse, there have been times when the anger came, his incarceration (having deprivation of stimuli and lack of movement), compounded the situation. he completely lost control to the point of screaming, kicking, banging on the door, cursing out of control with rage, and didn't completely know why. for a long while not realizing it wasn't him. this is due to a lack of proper consideration by the medical staff. He pretty much confirmed what the doctor told me about my experience and what this pill is capable.
I believe this answers at least some of your inquiry on whether pills for depression change someone in a bad way. I'd say yes. especially when you see those Zoloft and smoking commercials.
Now this brings up a question I have. why the hell are antidepressants prescribed to people with depression if it has such a result? Hmmmm🤔
P.S. I do realize this is an old recording. You've probably figured all the out by now. but... just in case.
okay girls, I think the story you're talking about 20 minutes into this regarding the people on the boat eating the guy that was unconscious, if it's the same one I'm thinking of there was a whole lot more to this story which is much more Grimm. I'm going to put a link to a course at Harvard with professor Michael J. Sandel. it's in his course 'The Moral Side of Murder' episode 2 'The Case For Cannibalism'. I truly loved these courses they were great. if you haven't listened to it I strongly recommend giving them a try. and why not, they're free on YouTube...
(I know this is an old episode, but it's never too late to hear more. Right? LOL)
This is amazing! My dad lives in Alvechurch, UK and my other family live nearby. It is a tiny tiny village but I had never heard this story before!
you girls we're, by far, the funniest this episode. I burst out laughing throughout (and I wasn't drinking any wine). love you all❣️
Ti and "Doh" not "Doo." It's based off of solfege.
OMG......i love this podcast! So funny and you're spin on the true crime podcasting is uniquely informative and hilarious! Also love the merch. (i wish the sweatshirt was.....less pricey).
Question: isn't there a thing where if your an American, you give birth in another country, the child is automatically an American citizen? or if your residence is there, the child would be considered a dual citizen?
y'all are absolutely amazing. my friend told me to listen and I'm hooked!
love this podcast. I have my friends hooked on it as well. Please keep it up.
actually you want to sleep and let the brain rest
I'm originally from Southern MN 30+ years, I've lived in Upstate NY for 13 years now. Listening to you 3 take me back "home". Thank you!

Love you guys, you make my work day go a little quicker.
OMG! I have listened to a ton of podcasts. I usually listen at work. I found this one and am only 20 minutes in to the first one and cannot quit laughing. Amanda sounds exactly like my college roommate, and expresses just like her too. I'm completely picturing her the entire time. ONLY problem is I'm not going to be able to listen at work; the hysterical laughing into tears is causing a bit of a problem.
I have spent most of this episode laughing. sure made my time at work go quickly!
I'm a new fan, damn glad I found y'all. even though y'all slam us Texans. Fun to listen to
I'm on the fence about these girls. I enjoy hearing about the wine they are featuring. However, it seems like they don't detail the subject matter very well, and they interject their politics where politics don't belong. It does lead me to believe they don't care about the subject matter, they are just having fun. There is, of course, no shame in having fun.I just think this topic may be the wrong place for it.
I love this podcast. The gals are funny and informative and cover each crime really well. 10/10 would recommend.
