Just Press Record: A Discussion of Emotions, Online Triggers, and BIND

Updated: Mar 12, 2023

Have you ever been afraid to turn on the news? To check your social media feed? To visit your favorite discussion group? Have you ever been so afraid of your own emotions and reactions that you isolate completely? Well, so has D.

In today’s episode, D tries something different…again. He hits the record button with absolutely no idea what he is going to talk about. No script. No topic. No agenda. What evolved is an open and honest discussion about struggle and success, media and emotions, and the lingering effects of benzos and BIND. I hope you’ll check it out.
