Carrie, the first person to ever have COVID, tells Ross about her intractable symptoms, and get-well-fast scheme: a little-known medicine called Ivermectin (not the horse version).

Paul and I continue our talk about the LDS (aka Mormon) Word of Wisdom.

UPDATE- I previously released this episode without any sound. It was just the theme song and then silence. My brain withdrawing from benzos and I forgot to give it a quick listen before I posted it. But here are my thoughts on more bad advice from therapists that I've collected, with more than a few digressions along the way. Therapists are not alw…

Here's the resources I was discussing whe…
