Dopamine “programming or pushing a button is NOT easier”

Having an IOF infantry Marine Corps veteran as a husband and working with many military and veteran clients I can tell you there is NOT a moral disconnect between those who push bomb buttons or run drones and infantry. Whether you’re shooting a child that’s coming at you with IEDs strapped to her or your blowing up a building you just saw a child walk into, emotionally you conscious mind stores that as a moral failing. There is no choice is war. You do what your told. You do what you have to to protect your brothers and sisters. But the emotion impact is the same as pushing the guy in front of the train. Button or no button. A lot of work has to be done to repair that trauma.

Dopamine triggering

I work in the behavioral health field and this podcast challenges me, continues to intrigue me, and has real life implications. I love that the newer episodes are longer. Thanks for sharing and taking the time to interview various specialists.

Finding meaning in your life

I am a new listener to the podcast and enjoyed listening to episode #75, How to Find Meaning in Life. As someone who helps people get "unstuck" in their lives and in their relationships, I deeply resonated with this episode and look forward to tuning into more.
