Ep. 96 The Psychological Growth of Lady Gaga


Throughout this episode of the Shrink Tank Podcast, our team of Shrinks discusses Lady Gaga’s upcoming Netflix documentary titled “Gaga: Five Foot Two.”

Stefani Germanotta, most commonly known as Lady Gaga, is a truly fascinating person. While most people would commonly associate the entertainer with crazy outfits (Meat Dress, this podcast is for you) and complex performances, few know that she is a huge advocate for mental health and equal rights for all. Her advocacy stems from her recently opening up about her fibromyalgia, her experience with trauma as well as her mental health issues.


Her upcoming Netflix documentary “Gaga: Five Foot Two” makes her the perfect subject for this podcast episode. We also discuss Ken Burns’ Acclaimed Documentary on the Vietnam War, now playing on PBS. In place of our Being Human topic, our panel of shrinks discuss the implications it has in our current political climate.


Listen in as we discuss these trending topics, why Instagram is the worst social media app for mental health, and how fictional portrayals of autistic people are not fully representative of those with the condition.

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