A very good Open Mic Wednesday, which takes place every last Wednesday of the month at 4 pm NY time.   The number to call from anywhere is 888 874 4888.  Today, calls varied from how to live life without drugs to surviving as a good therapist in professional communities that push drugs.  I also talk about the secrets to life.  The last Wednesday of the month focuses on callers, but you can call my talk radio show at 888 874 4888 at 4 pm NY time any Wednesday while you listen to the show on www.prn.fm<http://www.prn.fm> or its app.

My guest is British psychiatrist Joanna Moncrieff for whom I have deep respect for remaining a caring, pioneering professional and a writer of important books while participating in “the system,” in this case the National Health Service of Great Britain.   We examine the differences between US and British psychiatry, especially the seemingly greater opportunity for divergent opinions and at times improved care in the British system, which none the less remains deeply flawed and damaging.  We share experiences and ideas on psychiatric drug withdrawal and what people really need to overcome their psychological problems as well as the harm done by psychiatry.  A good solid discussion about current psychiatry and the harms of its drugs, as well as ECT.

An absolutely amazing show with guest and friend Pam Popper, physician and nutritionist, as we discuss our reactions on returning from the recent conference in Denmark inaugurating Peter Gøtzsche’s brand new Institute for Scientific Truth.  I conceived of the Institute and conference to bolster Peter’s morale after I learned that he was coming under such heavy attack from the European medical and scientific establishment that he would probably lose his academic and medical positions, as he eventually did.  The conference was a great event and clearly re-inspired Peter.  Pam and I made enthusiastically-received presentations and many attendees were there to hear us in particular.  Every speaker turned over new scientific rocks with creepy crawly evildoers crawling beneath.  The corruption is mind-boggling.   In the service of big government and big industry, bad science everywhere pushes out good science.  On the radio, Pam and I have a cutting edge, robust and at times truly remarkable conversation ranging over corruption throughout all the medical sciences down to some mind-bending specifics surrounding the vaccine controversy.   Many of our observations were surprising and enlightening to me.  It was so good we didn’t stop to take callers.  With all the dismal stuff, the show was fun!
