Description

Pop Psych 101 is a weekly mental health podcast hosted by Therapist, Ryan Engelstad, and advocate, Mike Graham. In an effort to educate and normalize, they talk candidly about mental illness through the lens of books, movies and television. Common pop culture mental health tropes are analyzed, and the accuracy of their portrayals are in question, for better or worse.

Pop Psych can be raw and real, and very serious, but it can also be very funny. If we really want to normalize the conversation on mental health, then we need to have real and normal conversations.

This week Ryan and Mike cover the much requested, Joker. A first here at Pop Psych 101, the guys actually had to leave their houses to see this movie. There is a lot to unpack with this portrayal of mental illness in pop culture, and though, both the guys have different viewpoints, they know that portraying mental health issues as a main character trait to audiences is no laughing matter.Find Us:Mental Health Podcast | Pop Psych 101We have a Blog!Ryan always had a Blog!Join our support groupFacebookTwitterInstagramMusic:Music from https://filmmusic.io"The Descent" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)Music from https://filmmusic.io"Supernatural" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/poppsych101/support

Do creative genius and mental illness go hand-in-hand? That's a burning question on Mike's mind this week and he looks to the 2005 documentary "The Devil And Daniel Johnston" for answers. A huge thanks goes out to Steve Reichert for co-hosting this episode, and for recording a cover of Hey Joe" by Daniel Johnston with Mike. You can listen to our cover again hereFind Us:Mental Health Podcast | Pop Psych 101We have a Blog!Ryan always had a Blog!Join our support groupFacebookTwitterInstagram--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/poppsych101/support

Based on the same-titled bestseller by Liane Moriarty, "Big Little Lies" weaves a darkly comedic tale of murder and mischief in the tranquil beachfront town of Monterey, Calif. Amidst doting moms, successful husbands, beautiful children, and stunning homes exists a community fueled by rumors and divided into haves and have-nots, exposing fractured relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, and friends and neighbors. Told through the eyes of three mothers -- Madeline, Celeste and Jane -- the series' narrative explores society's myths regarding perfection and its romanticization of marriage, sex, parenting and friendship. Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley star as the three prominent "mothers of Monterey." Find Us:Mental Health Podcast | Pop Psych 101We have a Blog!Ryan always had a Blog!Join our support groupFacebookTwitterInstagramMusic :Music from https://filmmusic.io "Darkest Child" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com) License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)Music from https://filmmusic.io "Dreams Become Real" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com) License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)Music from https://filmmusic.io "Too Cool" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com) License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/poppsych101/support
