Episode notes

In our seventh episode, Nic and Molly look back over our first six episodes. We discuss some of the major ideas we've covered so far: (1) the role of communities in care, (2) the healing power of belief, and (3) the millennia-old conflict between medicine and spirituality. We also consider how practices still in use today by indigenous groups carry on millennia-old traditions of love, wonder, and healing that resist the individualizing and isolating forces found within contemporary psychiatry and capitalism.
