Brain Yapping - Episode 5

Episode 5 – Forbidden Thoughts and Punting Children

In this week’s episode of Brain Yapping, Rachel and Dean stand on the precipice of compulsion as they discuss what happens in the brain when we have intrusive thoughts (no cats were put in bins during the making of this episode, but if one had been, we couldn’t really explain why…)

NB: Listeners are advised that this episode contains some discussion about suicide and OCD.
