The Best Psych Podcast Ever

I absolutely love this podcast and look forward to it every week. Dave and Greg explain concepts of psychology, various MH diagnoses, etc in a simple manner in which everyone can understand. Their banter is the effin best and I always crack up while listening. I love when they bring up differ things from the 80’s/90’s bc I can relate (since I’m in my 40s 🥴). The range of topics is always incredibly interesting and the podcast is soo much fun to listen to! I have been a Social Worker in the Philly Child Welfare system for 18 yrs and you guys take my stress away while providing me with a ton of knowledge. Thank you. 😘

Easy listening, clinically informed, and entertaining show

I love that this podcast takes a more lighthearted stance on topics as well as range of topics than many other therapy/psychology shows; while still maintaining accurate and clinically relevant talking points and explanations. The humor is much appreciated and the dynamic between hosts comes across as natural as possible. My favorite podcast as a counselor in training!

Great for work commute

I gave this podcast a listen last summer, and in its absence today, realized how much this show is now a part of my normal Tuesday routine and commute to work. I often find myself reacting out loud and thinking about some subjects well after the episode is over. I find that I only delay listening if it’s about a book I haven’t read yet (maybe a head’s up the week prior?). Either way, this podcast is well worth a listen; it may become a part of your routine too. Keep up the chipper banter fellas!
