Dr. Lance Dodes is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School (retired) and a psychoanalyst (Training and Supervising Analyst Emeritus at the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute).

Dr. Dodes is a signatory to a nationally discussed letter which was published in The New York Times which warned the public about the dangers posed by Donald Trump's mental health. He also has contributed a chapter on Donald Trump and sociopathy in the forthcoming book The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President


During this episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Dr. Dodes and Chauncey discuss how clinicians have a "duty to warn" the American people (and the world) about Donald Trump's mental health problems. Dr. Dodes also clarifies the common misunderstandings surrounding the so-called "Goldwater Rule". And  Dr. Dodes shares his thoughts about how he believes that Donald Trump is a sociopath and a megalomaniac not unlike other tyrants which we have seen throughout human history.

Writer and podcaster Alasdair Stuart also sits down at the virtual bar and salon to share his thoughts about the new Star Wars films and if they are in trouble because of a supposed "director problem". Stuart and Chauncey also select their own personal favorites to write and direct a Star Wars film and give an update on what is known about the plot and characters of Episode 8 and Episode 9 in the Star Wars Trilogies

On this week's show, Chauncey DeVega ponders ethical questions about the horrible hurricanes striking Texas, Florida, and the Caribbean such as "would he give aid and assistance to Trump supporters in those areas?" In this week's episode Chauncey also shares some troubling news about how current American politics have inspired the new Star Trek series "Discovery".

At this end of this week's episode, Chauncey also offers a personal reflection and promise in response to Ta-Nehisi Coates' new piece in The Atlantic about Donald Trump and whiteness.
