This week, Karen Tongson and Margaret Wappler are joined by clinical psychologist and actress Megan Auster-Rosen to discuss therapy in film and television shows.

Margaret Wappler is all about High Maintenance on HBO and the show’s weed dealer/confidant The Guy. Megan is all about Parkland student, Emma Gonzalez and her six minutes of silence, dedicated to the victims of the shooting at Stoneland Douglas High School. Karen is all about the NBC drama, Rise, even though it falls into some unfortunate tropes of the white man passing over the qualified woman of color for the job.

The panel will explain their first experiences with therapy in their personal lives. Then, they’ll get into therapy in such movies and shows like Big Little Lies, Meet the Fockers, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Sopranos and more. Plus, Megan will give her professional opinion on the benefits and downsides of TV therapy shows like Dr. Phil.

With Karen Tongson, Margaret Wappler and Megan Auster-Rosen .

That’s My Jam:

Megan Auster-Rosen - Alicia Keys - No one

Karen Tongson - The Lovin' Spoonful - Butchie's Tune

Margaret Wappler - Peter Gabriel - Come Talk to Me

Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to our Spotify playlists.

Ross and Carrie Cure Cancer: Tijuana Edition

| 0 comments

It's 2017, and here in the States, our incoming president is considering having a guy lead the FDA who is opposed to testing drugs for efficacy before approving them like so much caramel candy. To see what such lax regulations might look like, Ross and Carrie board a bus to Tijuana with dozens of cancer patients and their families, to tour some of the "alternative" cancer treatments that Mexico offers... but the U.S. currently bans. Will these treatments be effective, but mired in bureaucratic red tape? Just plain snake oil? Or somewhere in between? Find out in this bummer-but-important episode.

Plus, Carrie accidentally eats a bug.
