Ep. 09 What is Sarahah, PTSD in comics and real life.

We talk about the new social media app, Sarahah.  Kat makes fun of the name, because she can’t say it.  Lea talks about her use in it.  The premise isn’t a bad idea, especially when we are discussing the implications it has in the work force, but it should have been left as an individual application for companies to decide to use to help strengthen the weak links, or build moral by people being able to discuss the strengths of their co-worker anonymously.  But what  it is is a social media app where people tear apart and insult their “friends” […]

Ep. 08: Meta Batman, Female Doctor, BHNB

SPOILERS!!!!!!!!! OMG Batman is a meta… Kat goes on a rant on how everyone says that Batman is the best super hero because he has no super powers (other than he’s super rich, doesn’t make him a hero), and now….. in the Suicide Squad, he is classified as a meta due to his exposure to Nth metal.  He is classified as such from all of our favourite super bitch Amanda Waller. BBC has announced that the new doctor is (drum roll please) Jodi Whitaker and Butt Hurt Nerd Boys (BHNB)everywhere lost their collective shit.  The Doctor can’t have a vagina. […]

ep. 07 Finding yourself in pop culture and Ghost hunting

Kat got to explore one of her fandoms, geeky likes, nerd like passions… whatever you want to call it… But she went to see Eastern State Penitentiary.  It is a jail that was built in 1829 and closed in 1971.  This did pique Kat’s love of history (especially haunted history) and some psychological aspects in learning that when the prison first opened everyone was brought in to single cells with hoods on their heads so no one knew who they were, and their exercise yard was attached to their cells….individual exercise yards. Imagine doing 15 years of solitary confinement,  because […]

ep.06 Family of choice vs. Family of origin

Family of origin are the people who we are born into, or marry into.  While Family of Choice are the people that we choose to have involved in out lives.  These people will become like siblings, uncles, aunts or even surrogate parents for us. In fiction family of choice is often used to help create a family with people that they have more in common with, especially when the main character has developed some type of supernatural powers.  The new family share similar powers or secrets. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FamilyOfChoice

Ep. 05 Wonder Woman

Let’s just geek out on Wonder Woman for a few minutes here.  I loved the movie, Lea liked the movie as a customer, not a fan.  We get to go into our likes about the movie and of course the fun, “Go Women, Pro Woman” voice that the movie promotes.  This is not a long episode, and there is not really any family therapy aspects in it, but we get to geek out on it. This is a short episode, and of course talks about the

Level 60 Bikini Virgin Killer Sweater

Why when I play a female fighter or wizard or ranger or whatever when I play a video game the higher level my character is the less armor my character seems to be wearing.   My armor class is higher, that is cool, but it looks like I’m riding through Azeroth naked, or in a bikini. But when you pick up the armor in any dungeon, it will look like a really cool breast plate, or chain mail pants and when you put it on it’s like a loincloth.   Is this what guys are looking for? Anyway these costumes are not […]

Trauma Porn & new home tech

Starting off, we are apologizing for Lea & Kat sounding very congested, as tree sex attempts to kill them by hindering their breathing. Kat gets to gush about her new computer and software she is using to record and edit with (thanks Shannon.) Because new tech is always fun to talk about, and gush about, and get and play with. Why are people so fascinated by watching bad things happen?  As a society when there is a car accident we slow down to see what is going on, to see the chaos, the carnage, we pray that the people are […]

Is it really Video Game Addiction?

It seems many people believe they have a family member or loved one who is addicted to video games.  Are they really?  Are video games as bad as people think they are or is video game addiction just a new psychological buzz word.  This episode Lea and Kat discuss Video Game addiction; is it a diagnosis? What are the criteria? How did it first start? How can it be treated? And, how can it be prevented? This episode is very heavy and loaded with some history, some facts, and diagnostic criteria.  This episode is also a little longer than we […]
