Psychiatrist Bandy Lee is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. She is a psychiatrist at Yale University who specializes in public health and violence prevention. She recently convened a conference which explored questions related to Donald Trump's mental health and how psychiatrists and psychologists should respond to this crisis. The proceedings from this conference will be featured in a forthcoming book due out later this year.
During this week's show Dr. Lee and Chauncey discuss how mental health practitioners have an obligation to the public, the so-called "Goldwater rule", Trump's apparent emotional and mental health challenges, what compelled his voters to follow him, and the dangers he poses to the American people and the world.
Science fiction and horror writer, podcaster, and aficionado Alasdair Stuart is also a guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show and stops by to share his thoughts on the new movie Alien: Covenant.
In this week's episode Chauncey DeVega discusses the syphilitic emperor Donald Trump and his continuing efforts to cover-up how he is Russia's Manchurian candidate, Trump's evil federal budget, and the murderous violence and hatred inspired by Donald Trump and his fascist movement. This week's victim: Richard W. Collins III, a young African-American with a bright future ahead of him who was stabbed to death by a white supremacist in Maryland.
