“The Psychonaut Show,” hosted by Dr. JKB, is on a mission to seek out strange, new worlds in inner space. We discover the tools that psychoanalysts since Freud have used to penetrate the mysterious depths of the unconscious. At times, we go beyond psychoanalysis into the wisdom traditions of both East and West, but always with the practical goal of becoming more effective, more connected, and more attractive in our daily lives.
Dr. JKB is John K. Burton, M.D., a child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, and has been treating patients for more than 20 years. Although he does use medication and evidence-based psychotherapies, he has always found that people respond best when they feel understood. He credits his psychoanalytic training with a framework and tools for understanding even the most confusing situations. His belief that these tools should be available to as many people as possible, without financial or geographical limitations, inspired him to create “The Psychonaut Show” podcast.

informative and engaging

psychology (and psychoanalysis in particular) can be an intimidating topic to delve into in your free time, but dr. jkb is both a calming and knowledgeable guide to your journey. the episodes follow a clear narrative, leading you down a path to greater understanding of some very complex concepts. it has been an especially helpful foundation and has provided me with tools for further self-realization, both on my own time and when in session with my own therapist.

Insightful and delightful

I just discovered this podcast and I am hooked. JKB brings complicated psychiatric concepts to the a level they are generally comprehensible AND makes concrete connections to real life experiences. I love it!

Listen!

This is an amazing gem of a podcast. The material is organized and Dr. JKB has a great cadence in his story telling. You can hear the compassion in his voice as he draws you into his explorations making you feel like both friend and student; patron and participant. Thank you for this content, I only wish there was more to explore :)
