Extremely provocative and yet absolute true: Psychiatric drug-induced violence and suicide, and the underlying evil that drives pharmaceutical cover-ups! Peter C. Gøtzsche, MD, Danish researcher, joins me for the second of four one-hour examinations of what he calls “Deadly Psychiatry and Organized Denial.” Drawing on the most recent research, this discussion left me nearly shouting in my outrage over what is routinely taking place in psychiatry and the Pharmaceutical Empire, and its rampant abuse of patients. Listen to all four weekly discussions with this brilliant, dedicated, ethical physician, starting December 7, 2016.
This is the first of four consecutive hours with Peter C. Gøtzsche MD, author of Deadly Psychiatry and Organized Denial. Dr. Gøtzsche is an internationally esteemed scientist from Denmark who became appalled when he began to examine psychiatric research and clinical practices, independently coming to many of the same conclusions as I have. He documents his work with a fresh, insightful scientific approach. In this hour, we examine the enormous gap between how psychiatrists perceive their patients and how their patients perceive themselves, and how the drive to drug corrupts prescribers, making them unable to appreciate or understand the people that they are treating.
An astonishing hour with classicist Michael Fontaine PhD relating Greek and Roman tragedies to madness, psychosis, the oppression and liberation of women, the impact of Elvis and the Beatles, and the fear that men have of women and of slaves. Truly a rich and thoughtful conversation about psychology and life, now and in the past, and its common themes of conflict and injustice.
Kim Witczak lost her husband to antidepressant-induced suicide and has become a powerful advocate speaking truth to the Pharmaceutical Empire. Hear her astonishing story of one person’s impact in Washington, DC, including her recent appointment as the Consumer Representative on the FDA Advisory Committee that makes recommendations about approving psychiatric drugs. Learn about the new drug company thrust to undermine Black Box warnings on drugs about suicide and violence. A very informative and inspiring hour with a great consumer advocate. A real glimpse into the corruption rampant in government/industry relationships.
Dr. Peter Breggin Talks About the Trump Victory
I spent this hour addressing the grief of American progressives and the dismay of many Europeans over the defeat of Hillary Clinton and the election victory of Donald Trump. I draw on my book, Wow! I’m an American! How to Live Like Our Heroic Founders and present what I call the Primary Principles of living a good life. No one knows how Trump will act as President but many of us hope he will, at least to some degree, promote the great principles that founded this nation. I hope that sharing these ideas on the radio, at this time of grief and anger for many, will help to heal the rancor and to help those who feel grief and rage to understand those of us who have more hope for the future of America.
Wonderful Pam Popper, premier scientific nutritionist and successful innovator, will educate and inspire you about the real road to overall health.

Paula Caplan PhD, psychologist and playwright, talks about her upcoming off-broadway show, Shades, as well as her participation in another more absurd drama on committees of the notorious American Psychiatric Association Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Paula is a person of enormous creativity, insight and courage. For those of you who have already heard Paula on two earlier shows, this is a whole new expression of her lively existence on Earth.
My guest Gretchen Watson, PhD takes us on a fascinating trip from helping children escape ADHD and drugs to helping companies overcome workplace errors and injuries. Her career expresses the truth that from family life to organizational life, many of the principles of healthy, successful living are the same. Gretchen is President of Safety and Leadership Solutions.
I begin with my role in an $11.9 million Paxil suicide case. Then a favorite guest, Robert Foltz PsyD and I talk about his research on the patients’ view of treatment and his continuing study of the risks of psychiatric drugs for children. Dr. Foltz is a role model for being an honorable and effective psychologist.
My guest, Melanie Sears PhD, is a trainer for the Center of Nonviolent Communications. Based on self-awareness and empathy, the approach improves communication on every level from working with individuals and couples to working with hospitals and businesses. It enhances any therapeutic activity or relationship, large or small. Genuinely holistic and clearly effective, the nonviolent communication approach should be a central part of our family, professional and community lives.
