Great Topics and Guests

I find the guests and the topics to be really good. I’ve learned so much about topics o didn’t even know I was interested. Dr. Plimpton is very informed and knows enough about each topic and about each guests work to ask the right questions.

So helpful

As a parent of an anxious child I was very happy to find this podcast. Dr. Plimpton is so good at explaining in simple words and concise manner different ways we can help our kid. We’ve been to group therapy which was extremely helpful, but having this podcast is an amazing tool for us. It reminds us a bit of what we worked on therapy and explains a little more. The interviews with experts are very interesting; his comments and questions are spot on. Thank you Dr. Plimpton.
