Radical Advice is a weekly live talk show on San Francisco's award-winning internet community radio station, Best Frequencies Forever. Each week my co-host Brian Thompson and I bring in a guest (therapists, activists, artists) for conversations about the intersection of psychotherapy, personal growth, and activism. Listeners submit questions anonymously on the website and we try our best to address them.
We spend a lot of time talking about the big issues that are impacting us on the collective scale and how these impacts play out in our personal lives as well - from racism and white privilege, to sexual assault, to family dynamics and personal traumas.
I love this mostly unscripted, off the cuff format but I also love editing so in March 2018 I began releasing "Radical Shorts" on my podcast A Therapist Walks Into a Bar in which I mine some gold from Radical Advice and edit it down to a 10 minute piece. This has been a great way to bridge my two shows and make some of the content of Radical Advice easily digestible for people who are in a hurry. You can find those pieces below.
Radical Advice is live Tuesdays from 10am-noon PST on BFF.fm. You can listen to past broadcasts in the archives or in your favorite podcast listening place. You can submit your life questions anonymously on the show's website.
