Episode 21!  Why is it that we always see articles about "cure-all" foods like Acai or Kale, and then weeks later we see articles that say those foods are actually no good for you?  This show is a discussion about how research is shared and conducted.  IT IS A NERDY PODCAST, ALL RIGHT?  Just listen and learn something....

"Bipolar" has become a very commonly used term in pop culture - in this show I discuss the actual illness; how it (and other) mental illnesses are diagnosed and how mental health diagnoses can differ from other kinds of medical diagnoses.  I also share some very similar mental illnesses that can often be confused for Bipolar Disorder.  Vote for my show on!!!
