For the past six years I've been creating two interview-based podcasts: Shrink Rap Radio (www.shrinkrapradio.com) and Wise Counsel Podcast (www.wisecounselpodcast.com). Many of these interviews are with notable depth psychology authors/practitioners. I'm hoping to promote these free podcasts to the depth psychology community.
What is your WEB SITE (IF you would like to promote it)?
Glad to have you join us especially since you appear to be interested in disseminating depth psychological perspectives to the general population. The Alliance is also dedicated to getting the information to move from the analyst's office to the streets. I will be interested in the ways you and Bonnie work together for the greater good. Again, welcome and enjoy the many blogs, forums, and groups. I look forward to your posts.
Hi David! Wow! This is so wierd. I have been thinking about you yesterday and today!
I know we don't know each other--but someone mentioned you to me a week or two ago and of course I know your work--I have been following Shrink Rap Radio since I was at SSU back in 2007. In fact, your show has inspired me in Depth Insights radio which I'm doing more of lately.
I was thinking just yesterday I should reach out to you and see if I could get an RSS feed for the Alliance!--and here you are. I'm telling you!--no such thing as a coincidence.
Well. Meanwhile--a big welcome--and I hope you will find the opportunity to connect with others and enjoy some great content while sharing your work as well.
