Feb 18 2018 110 mins  
In this special episode of the podcast, we address 10 questions from our Stalker/Patrons! Including: Sarah in Stalker group: “You guys are always talking about technology addiction, sometimes I find myself genuinely worried about how much time I spend on my phone or computer. What scares me more is how anxious I feel when I'm not using it. Any tips for a struggling iPhone addict?” Heather in the Stalker group: “What are your thoughts, is this moral?” https://ia.meaww.com/read/technology/company-creates-suicide-machine-that-will-assist-patients-with-their-death/wp?utm_source=wp&utm_campaign=influencer&utm_medium=4697 Cadence in the stalker group: "A debate that I currently run into as whether or not Boderline Personality Disorder is really a personality disorder or the result of complex trauma. A colleague of mine won't utilize the name BPD and instead refers to it as complex trauma. Just an idea!" The Psychology of Comedy requested by famous stalker John & also Cadence in the stalker group shared this article: https://themighty.com/2017/09/pete-davidson-borderline-personality-disorder-manipulation/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=Mighty_MH_Page Kendra in the stalker group: "Forgive me if this has been discussed I'm a little behind. Has there been a episode on the effects of music on your mood: Personally work has been insanely stressful the last few weeks(had my first panic attack in roughly 5 years last week) and music has been helping calm me. So I'm wondering if that is universal." Typical American lifestyle: Now vs. the 50's Tracy in the stalker group: “I'm not sure if you guys have ever done a little bit of this in an episode, but have your ever thought of doing an episode on the psychology of forgiveness? I saw this documentary a few years ago and followed her path, as I held grudges so badly. It was just ruining my life. I've become so much happier since then and find it so interesting." http://m.imdb.com/title/tt0489707/ Online Personality tests like Myers Briggs

Glenn Taylor Helzer, an infamous cult leader and murderer. Everything in his life was the perfect combination to create such a narcissistic "prophet," including a strong Mormon upbringing, bizarre parenting, mission trips and of course, plenty of charm on his part. Listen to this episode of the podcast to hear Michael's take on the psychology of a cult leader. STAY TUNED: (Next week's UNPLUGGED is "Ranking Cults").

How to Resist Brainwashing and Election PTSD

[UNPLUGGED FORMAT] Friday, November 18th— Send in your questions: [email protected] Questions: 1. Wouldn't the move be - in the case of both Daryl Dixon on TWD and Patty Hearst - to have played along with the captors? Say your name is Neegan? 2. Could Patty Hearst's conditioning from when she was brainwashed resurface later in her life? 3. Why did you do a political show when none of UPC's other content is political? Because we put so much into our main show that releases on Tuesday morning, we decided to contrast that by pulling back the curtain for this round-table, informal, unedited forum where we answer your questions! UPC UNPLUGGED is live on Fridays to answer the questions YOU send in to [email protected] !
