Kanye West is not a topic we’ve shied away from in the past.

Our contributor Dr. Rachel Kitson wrote her take on the “Psychology of Kanye West” back in 2016 and it’s been a top-grossing post ever since. So, what’s going on in Kanye’s head? Today’s episode covers Yeezy’s latest controversy in the news as well as the psychological traits of Kanye.

Listen in as our panel of Shrinks discusses today’s trending topic, the psychology of Kanye West.

“The only things I’m sure of when it comes to Kanye is that I have absolutely no earthly idea what he’s going to do next and I think what’s so interesting about him.”

–Dr. Frank Gaskill


Being Human

In our Being Human segment, the Shrink Tank Podcast panelists discuss the correlation between those who believe “real America” is decaying from within with those who believe in conspiracy theories.

New research has found evidence that conspiracy theories are associated with the belief that core American values are under siege. The study examined the role of system identity threat, meaning the perception that society’s fundamental values are fading away because of social change. Our panel of Shrinks unpack this study and discuss their thoughts.
