Brilliant!

I grew up on comic books, and I literally learned many important life lessons - from relationships, to battling with alcoholism, and learned that super heroes were written to be... human. It's neat to hear psychiatry applied to them. It's almost cathartic, as I'd like these heroes to get better!

Intriguing concept

A big fan of the concept of this podcast; the hosts do a great job consolidating years of the characters into important bullet points, providing a psychiatric perspective to the characters that create a deeper understanding of them, and describing the method(s) they'd use to treat them. Highly recommended.

The Show I Didn’t Know I Needed

Do you like comic books? Are you interested in abnormal psychology? Then this is podcast for you! The hosts are very entertaining. I’ve learned a ton about my favorite heroes/villains. Love the skits at the end.
