‘The Avengers: Infinity War’: Superhero Psychology


The Avengers: Infinity War is the latest release from the Marvel universe. Today’s episode covers hopes for the movie, predictions on characters and plotlines, and the psychological behaviors behind our favorite characters.


Listen in as our panel of Shrinks discusses today’s trending topic, The Avengers: Infinity War.



“I predict that something is going to happen to Spiderman. We have a heart for him, he’s sweet and naive. He needs to experience some trauma if he’s going to be stronger.”


–Dr. Frank Gaskill



Being Human

In our Being Human segment, the Shrink Tank Podcast panelists discuss how studying depressed robots can teach us about our own mental health.


New research is looking at the idea of failure and flexibility and the correlation between why humans might get depressed. This study focuses on the prospect of learning from artificial intelligence and it’s flexible learning, we could learn about how the mind of a depressed individual can adapt to certain life stressors and environments.

Doctor’s Orders

In our Doctor’s Orders segment, the Shrinks talk products and other things they are personally enjoying in pop culture.



Golden Hour by Kacey Musgraves


While Dr. Emma Kate Wright doesn’t typically like country, she stumbled upon Kacey Musgraves latest album, Golden Hour, while perusing on Spotify and had to recommend it this week.


Soothing vocals, clever lyrics and a myriad of instrumental progression craft this album as something more than just typical country music. Give it a listen here.

Lost in Space on Netflix

Dr. Frank Gaskill’s recommendation for the week is Lost in Space, available on Netflix. The action-packed series stuns (as it should with its impressive budget) but it also explores many elements of the family dynamic. Now streaming on Netflix.


HBO’s ‘Andre the Giant’ Documentary


Packed with nostalgia, Jonathan Hetterly claims this as a must-see for anyone with HBO. This documentary covers a new perspective on Andre the Giant and the World Wrestling Foundation. Watch it with HBO.
