Throughout this episode of the Shrink Tank Podcast, our team of Shrinks discusses the phenomenon of how fear is being portrayed in pop culture.

Historically, movies and television have been used as a way to escape the problems of everyday life. But what happens when fiction reflects reality? Jonathan Hetterly touches on how, similarly, horror and sci-fi movies have been typical avenues for commentary on the fear of changes in cultural climate. Whether it’s war, politics or racial tension, our nation is experiencing this discomfort and our pop culture content is undoubtedly reflecting that. Listen in as we discuss this, how weed can help solve America’s opiate problem, and highly narcissistic people feel distressed rather than gratified when viewing themselves.


Join our Shrink Tank podcast contributors Dave Verhaagen, Emma Kate Wright, Frank Gaskill and Jonathan Hetterly as they discuss this week’s trending topic.
