For fans of Jung looking for fresh insights

Wow. I love this podcast! Alyssa and Arran tackle difficult concepts very creatively and make them accessible to the average listener. I am a therapist and these two understand psychology better than almost all of my therapist friends, while weaving in stories, pop culture, and humor. The podcast is teaching me so much! But it’s also fun.

My favorite podcast

This podcast has so much meaty content, diving down into the hidden aspects of who we are and what makes us who we are - the broken and insecure parts as well as our core strengths. This show gives us a perspective on how to investigate our belief systems as well as our circuitry, and the limiting thoughts and ideas that might inhabit us. It helps us get in touch with the processes of our psychology in order to meet life more consciously.
