NSP041 – Stories we tell to control one another

Quarantine shaming and mask shaming are new concepts that have risen out of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, but cancel culture in general was shaming people before it was cool.

These social pressures have rapidly become issues we have to deal with every day, especially those of us who entertain alternative views. But it wasn’t always this way.

Harv sits down (virtually) with film-maker, musician and podcaster Keith “Legion” Snyder to talk about his take on this new cultural phenomenon as a self-proclaimed but non-conforming millennial.

Harv examines some of the strangeness going on in the world recently and tries to make sense of it all.

Shall we get confused together?

NSP033 – Is Character-based Therapy a Thing?

On previous episodes we’ve talked about narrative therapy and telling stories through character.

This episode we investigate the intersection of these two ideas. Can identifying personas as characters improve mental health? Rod Evans, turntablist, music producer and the other half of Angus McAlpine’s rap duo “Broken Aesthetiks”, joins us to share his story.

Because, apparently character-based therapy is already a thing!

NSP032 – The “New Age” Religion Story

We’ve all heard of the New Age religion. But what does it mean and what, exactly are we signing up for when we throw our hat in that ring?
