Love this podcast

Hosts give me a sense of community in these isolating times. I’m a fairly newly licensed practitioner and hope to one day be a psychoanalyst. This has a great variety of topics that is helpful in learning aspects of the field

like humans do...

Thank you for this exploration of the curious practice of psychoanalysis as experienced by two humans whose unique perspectives and socially-oriented conversations bring the field to life.

Thank you Edgard and Grégoire for this welcome interlude — I listen to every episode and anticipate eagerly each month’s installments ... your open-hearted exchanges are life-affirming.

sleepy legriff ,

much-needed forum for analytic discussion

Thank you Pierre and Danielson for initiating this psychoanalytic discussion. I hope this develops into a forum to discuss the theories and practice of psychoanalysis, a field which can offer a clinical approach and a model of thinking essential our current times.
