A great whistleblower.  Kristina Borjesson is one of the most remarkable journalists of our time, involved at the highest level as a writer, TV producer, and filmmaker.  She is proud to be the only journalist blackballed by three TV networks and she tells these stories in a way you will never forget.  She provides a true insider’s view of corruption in the major media and the life of a journalistic truthteller.   She wrote, directed, and coproduced the film TWA Flight 800 about the US  airliner that was shot out of the sky.  The film does not to take a position on who fired the missiles, but many others have suspected it was our own navy on maneuvers.  She has also been researching the coronavirus coverups which we examine toward the end of her amazing hour with me.

My guest Matt Strauss, MD, an intensive care doctor, represents all that is good about being a physician.  He cares about his patients, about the ethic to “First, do no harm,” about science, and about the need to control in ourselves the potential for arrogance that afflicts all of us physicians.  He is also brilliant and articulate.  Do not miss this hour in which he shares his experience with COVID-19 and his analysis of the medical and social issues surrounding it.  For me personally, it was a great hour.     

COVID-19 Totalitarianism.  Can we stop our governors from abusing us?  From taking our rights away to treat COVID-19?   Is COVID-19 even that much of a danger?  Is the death rate being faked? Is anyone in danger except for elderly people with multiple illnesses?  My guest is Thomas Ranz, heroic Ohio attorney, who has brought an injunction to end Gov DeWine's interminable emergency declaration and to provide a model for other state injunctions.  For his case, which was brought on September 1, I wrote a detailed scientific/political legal report about totalitarian public health and how it is harming and even killing people throughout the world.  This is a powerful show that exposes the growing corruption of science and the coercive measures being imposed on America and the world.  We delve deeply into the threat, not of COVID-19, by of the people who seek so avidly to impose more top-down government control upon us.
 

Be bedazzled by Dr. Nass, as I am with her.  Meryl Nass MD is an internist but she is really something more extraordinary, a doctor who all her life has sought out the truth about medications to treat viruses and vaccines to prevent them.  For a very scientific and yet impassioned discussion about COVID-19, treatments and potential vaccines, this is the hour for you.  We also have the fun of actually becoming friends on the show, which adds a delightful aura to all knowledge we exchange together and with you.  Meryl Nass will entertain and enlighten you.      

Pam Popper PhD is Founder and President of Wellness Forum Health and an amazing person bursting with life, intelligence, scientific acumen, a reform spirit, and love.   She brings all of this to a very thorough discussion of COVID-19 and what it’s really all about.  This will catch you up on our latest thoughts and feeling about the causes and the cures, and how people are managing to live life amid the pandemic.  I found it inspiring. 

The Hearing Voices Network is a bright light in the darkness of approaches to people who have seemingly “alternative” experiences that psychiatrists classify as psychosis and demean with diagnoses like schizophrenia.   The centerpiece of today’s show is a marvelous 24-year-old woman, Alison Branitsky, who has been hearing voices since she was a child and who managed miraculously to escape destruction in the psychiatric system as a teenager.  My other guest, the magnificent psychologist John Read, and myself are mainly catalysts to the presentation that Alison makes personally and as a leader in the Hearing Voices Network USA.  I know I have been especially enthusiastic about many of my recent shows; but I can guarantee you will learn from and be inspired by Alison and by the existence of the worldwide Hearing Voices movement.   In you are in the field of mental health, and know little about this movement, please, please, please watch or listen to this show.  If you have any interest in the genuine internal life of us humans, you too should pay attention to Alison Branitsky and the hearing voices movement.   

Jeffrey Masson is an international treasure, one of the most thoughtful people I have ever known.  He has enlightened me about many vastly important issues from Freud’s betrayal of children by denying the existence of child abuse, to the role of Psychiatry in Nazi Germany, on to the importance of animals for their own sake and in our lives.  For many years, his writing has focused on the lives of animals and the meaning of our relationships with them, and today’s show was supposed to focus on his new book, Lost Companions: Reflections on the Death of Pets; but we could not resist covering a fascinating range of topics including those I’ve mentioned above.  This is a very thoughtful and enlightening show, a rare experience that adds wonderment to our lives.   
 

Attorney Jim Gottstein is a human rights hero.  At grave personal and professional risk to himself, he made public the inside information demonstrating that Eli Lilly & Co was hiding the deadly effects of its so-called antipsychotic drug Zyprexa.   Jim’s new book, The Zyprexa Papers,  is a dramatic and revelatory exposé coupled with an inspirational message that people can and do recover from deeply distressed psychospiritual experiences, including psychosis, without taking drugs that can destroy their health and even take their lives.   Yet there is much more to Jim's career, including many successful cases before the Alaska Supreme Court on behalf of patient rights.  There is no other lawyer in the world like Jim Gottstein.  This is a great discussion between two lifelong reformers. 

Professor John Read from Great Britain is one of the finest, most dedicated mental health professionals in the world.  His work and today's discussion spans from research into the origins of psychosis to the abysmal failure of ECT and the hazards of psychiatric drug withdrawal.   This wonderful hour with Dr. Read is worth sharing with everyone with any interest in reforming psychiatry, psychology and mental health services.  Getting to know this person and his work is a treat.
 
Psychiatry Unmasked:  Two Leading Critics Talk.  Peter Gøtzsche, MD and I take a head-on look at the essential flaws and corruption that pervade psychiatry.  Dr. Gøtzsche is the outstanding Danish researcher who is the leading European critic of psychiatry.  You won’t find a better overall critique anywhere.  We look at the harm caused by the neurotoxic drugs, the curse of involuntary treatment, the myths of biochemical and genetic causes, and psychiatric resistance to teaching people how to safely withdraw from psychiatric drugs.  We suggest to psychiatrists what they can do to partially redeem themselves and urge them to take the courageous steps!
