Misogyny gets in the way

This podcast would be amazing if not for Justin’s excessive defensiveness, the way he talks so condescendingly to Mercedes and has to prove himself right at all times. While I’ve learned a lot about trauma by listening, I’ve been so upset by hearing him repeatedly interrupt and talk down to Mercedes that I think I’ll have to stop listening. It’s wild to me that a therapist can be so lacking in self reflectivity. I’ve learned a lot about de-escalation from hearing the way Mercedes deals with Justin’s constant need to prove himself right and her wrong, but the podcast would be way better if he weren’t so sexist and patronizing!

Good podcast overall!

This podcast has so much useful information! I am glad for that— so 4 stars! Sometimes I get frustrated listening to the guy (Justin?). He tends to want to debate and tease out every statement regardless of value added to the discussion. It can be exhausting. Overall, a good podcast— I just have to engage in small doses.
