My friend and marvelous psychologist Michael Cornwall PhD is my guest on this, my second live radio show that is also filmed as a TV show for presentation as a video on my YouTube channel.   Our lively conversation ranges over topics from the effect of emotional trauma on children to the FDA’s approval of Monarch,  a method of electrically stimulating (really disrupting) the brains of children labelled ADHD, as well as any other children with almost any diagnosis that the doctor imagines it will help.  I also return to an ongoing topic of genuine attempts at even more subtle forms of mind control than putting electrodes on the foreheads of sleeping children.  Billions of dollars are behind developing computer-brain electrode-to-flesh connections both for “treating mental illness” and for making super-people.  This is not conspiracy theory, this is not fantasy, this stuff is in fact being highly promoted.   Find out more on www.breggin.com.  And remember, this is now my weekly radio/TV show.

Starting with this show, The Dr. Peter Breggin Radio/TV Hour goes live with radio every Wednesday, followed by the filmed TV version a few days later on my YouTube Channel. Yes, it’s now a radio/TV show, thanks to new technology at Progressive Radio Network (www.PRN.FM).  On this first radio/TV show, I am Joined by nutritionist Pam Popper PhD and psychiatrist and Pinar Miski, MD for a Peter, Pam and Pinar special.  It will be a regular feature the first Wednesday of every month.    This is the radio version of the fun, interesting and informative first presentation.   It’s the inaugural radio/TV show, so please forgive a few glitches along the way.

I began today’s Dr. Peter Breggin Hour with a discussion of the latest mind control technology being openly planned and boasted about by Tesla’s billionaire Elon Musk and how he is collaborating with DARPA, the government’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.  Check the latest in mind control on my website at my new resource called My Very Newest Highlights as “the Conscience of Psychiatry.”   Our callers today sought help on issues from depression and traumatic head injury to how to manage living with their mother and exiting cults. Perhaps listening to our conversations can be helpful to you. 

My guest, David Mark Keirsey, is a researcher in Artificial Intelligence but the show is nothing about that.  He has decided to spend a portion of his life promoting the work and telling the story of his amazing father David Keirsey, a brilliant psychologist who has since passed on.   David knew that his father and I were friends who shared many interests and so he got in touch with me.   His father wrote the multi-million best sellers Please Understand Me and Please Understand Me II. The first of those two books had a healthy influence on my understanding of myself and I of recommend it to my clients.  The show mostly focused on Keirsey’s concept of the four temperaments:  The Idealist, Artisan, Guardian and Rational, which is an area I have not studied.  You can listen and check out who you are.  If you’re interested, I talk a lot more about myself than usual and conclude I am an Idealist and a Rational.   To me, most interesting, is Keirsey’s concept that madness is a choice that is made when we feel unworthy and want to defend against it or run from feeling unworthy.  I used to think that madness was a choice, but that's hard to argue when anyone can be driven made if systematically driven over the edge.  I’ve been working on a similar, more universal concept that most or all psychological overwhelm (not only the extreme of madness) comes ultimately from feeling unworthy of love.  Keirsey concluded that people can feel unworthy about many different things—but I tend to think that feeling unworthy of love is ultimately psychological calamity.  Tune it: It’s an interesting conversation.

Today’s hour was a get together with two very dear friends and colleagues, Pam Popper, PhD my nutritionist and creator of my educational courses and Pinar Miski, MD who teaches my best course https://breggin.com/dr-peter-breggins-three-new-pioneering-courses/ live on-line.   There was no agenda except I was thinking about love and how all the worst emotional, psychological and psychiatric “disorders” have deep roots in feeling unworthy of love, unlovable, unloved and hence worthless, and that recovery requires reversing all of that.  From there we went on to chat, as my friends often do, about each other, about what makes us happy,  about what’s good and bad in the world.  In a way that surprised me, we even talked about what people did to find tiny bits of happiness while confined to extermination camps.  This hour was a very uplifting experience that we welcome you to share. It's a round table of people who care about you and others around the world. 

My guest today is Jeanne Stolzer PhD, a scientist and a friend from whom I always learn something new.  I guarantee that you will have new important insights into life if you listen to this amazing interview with Jeanne.  It's about what it means to be a human mammal whose evolution has made our success and well-being dependent upon close nurturing from a nursing mother (yes, a nursing mother, not a nondescript nurturer), with a close attachment to her for months and years.  Here is a political fact:  free government nurseries that are being pushed are not the answer for children.  The answer, if it comes from the government, needs to be financial support for extensive maternal leave.  Our children need mothers and without that they end up with diagnoses and drugs both psychiatric and medical.   Jeanne graphically describes, backed by research, the necessity of a child’s immersion in both its relationship with its mother and with nature. Then, throughout life as adults, we all need strong attachments of friendship and love to other human beings and to nature.  Nurturing cures! Nature cures!  Listen to this hour about what we humans really need and have needed throughout our millions of years as mammals leading up to our current status as homo sapiens.  Be homo sapiens—be wise about our lives and learn from this wonderful conversation with Jeanne Stolzer.

A uniquely wonderful show with nutritionist and medical consultant Pam Popper, PhD and a special unexpected call-in by another dear friend, psychiatrist Pinar Miski, MD.   We have a spontaneous, heartfelt three-way conversation about the realities and politics of nutrition, about saving animals from research, about doing our best to improve the world, and how blessed the three of us feel to know and work with one another other.  Also about our upcoming conference November 8-12 in Columbus, Ohio.  An inspiring conversation to remind you that life is worth living and that daring to live honestly is deeply rewarding and even full of fun. 

Today’s open mic day (the last Wednesday of each month) begins with me announcing and discussing a  new revelation about pharmaceutical evil.   In in 1994, I was the scientific expert for all the combined 160 product liability suits against El Lilly alleging that Prozac was causing mayhem, mania, violence and suicide.   In retrospect, I was the only professional in the world standing up against the growing tidal wave of SSRI antidepressants.   In this hour of my show, I explain how Eli Lilly simultaneously fixed the trial and tried to destroy my credibility.   I managed to survive despite the fix which involved betrayal by the lawyers who hired me as well as the company itself.  Before the the fix was discovered many months after the trial, it looked like a clean victory for Eli Lilly and opened the floodgates to the new antidepressants which do far more harm than good.  I spend time on this drama because, after two and a half decades, we now know the size of Eli Lilly’s secret payoff to the plaintiffs.  It cost the company a mere 20 million dollars to get returns of multi-billions.

My guest Patrick Hahn and I focus on psychosis and so-called schizophrenia:   Is it a disease?   Is it genetic?  Is it biological?  Or are severe psychiatric disorders a normal human response to early trauma, neglect and deprivation.  Do the drugs work?   Are there better alternatives for helping people who received the more severe psychiatric diagnoses?   Patrick has an enormous fund of information and is a fountain of wisdom.   A very good discussion of these and related difficult topics that are often obfuscated by by false claims from the psychiatric establishment.
 

This open  mic Wednesday, which is always the last show of the month, turned into an extraordinary interview with my first caller.  I began the hour talking about the importance of self-determination, autonomy, independence, personal sovereignty and the dreadful “R—Word,” responsibility.   I described how all of us are tempted to let others take over at times while we lapse into some degree of helplessness .  I outlined the potentially deadly results when psychiatry takes over for people who feel or act helpless.   Then Julie called in and told the story of how she was taken over by psychiatry, put on drugs for decades, and finally developed kidney disease from lithium but was lied to about it.  But Julie is a powerful being and she managed to throw off the disabling impact of psychiatry suppress and to begin rebuilding her life.  Her story of retaking control of herself fit seamlessly into my introduction about taking charge of one’s own life. The conversation between Julie and me provides a marvelous opportunity to see with dramatic clarity the harm that psychiatry does in robbing people of their sense of personal sovereignty and free will—and how individuals can nonetheless find their own power, throw off the yoke, and begin to build lives for themselves.  A very strong hour!
