#146 – Defining Insanity & Decoding Madness: “Daimonic” Nature, True Crime & Analysing Extreme Acts With Richard Lettieri Ph.D
Nov 28th, 2021
Richard Lettieri Ph.D; forensic neuropsychologist, psychoanalyst and author joins Mike for an in-depth discussion of his field of work, the human condition and his new book; Decoding Madness!
In more detail, Richard begins by explaining why & how he wrote his book, his experience over the last few decades working in the fields of neuropsychology and psychiatry, as well as being an expert witness for countless court cases, before he talks about the term “daimonic” and how it is a reflection of many aspects of human nature. Richard also talks about the wide variety of individuals he’s spoken with in his line of work, whether or not some people are just “broken”, some of his influences (including Sigmund Freud), how his psychoanalytical knowledge affects his everyday life and more – be warned, there are some fairly graphic examples in this conversation!

In the last episode of GCC, number 145, Mike was joined by JAC, Megan & Ria for a massive discussion on the 9 episodes of the Star Wars anime anthology series; Visions! In more detail, the group discuss their first impressions of the trailer & announcement of Visions before delving into the themes, characters, comparisons, voice-acting, animation and all other aspects of the 9 episodes, so strap-in for a look into the more experimental side of Star Wars content, and to answer the question; is this the SW content we’re looking for?
