Phenomenal

Terrific podcast for neuropsychologists and trainees! Wide variety of topics that are related to our field and important to consider. Thanks for bringing some productivity to my commute :)

Something wrong

There is something deeply and profoundly wrong with the mental health field. It’s primary goal is to make people submit to an insane world, usually through drugs aka medications. Our society is insane not the individual. These people profit from the insanity.

Aerospace Neuroscience

Interesting interview. I listen as a former military, airline and hobby flier. And, married to a Neuro Psyc.

I would only make one correction to the description of the FAA medical classifications. A First Class medical is required for operators of (scheduled) 121 carriers. This is basically the airlines, but not limited to people carriers. The big freight companies (Fedex and UPS) pilots require the same 1st class FAA medical certificate.

Nice work!
