    Evolution of Schizophrenia Treatment

In this episode host and schizophrenic Rachel Star Withers takes you through the dark and disturbing evolution of schizophrenia treatments. From systematic euthanasia to hydrotherapy, electroconvulsive therapy to the infamous lobotomy. 
    Were these doctors "mad scientists" torturing the mentally ill or were they the only ones trying to help a population of people seen as a burden?

I’ll miss y’all

I can relate to a lot of the content, and even when I can’t, it’s funny and thought-provoking. Thanks for doing this. I’ll be listening to your back catalog for awhile. Best of luck with everything!!

No!!

I am so bummed that the podcast is cancelled. I found you guys this summer, and listened to all of the shows while I worked in my garden. I thought it was great to have a divorced couple host and dissect issues, as I have bipolar disorder and am married, and have navigated so many of the same experiences. If you ever come back, I’ll be back too!
