Therapy: Does It Work?

Tijd: 34:18
Our mental health has taken a turn for the worse the past couple of years. We keep hearing that therapy can help, but it can be a big investment of time and money. So is it worth it? How often does therapy really help people? To find out, we talked to Jacquelyn Revere and psychologists Dr. Jonathan Shedler, Professor Bunmi Olatunji and Dr. Nancy McWilliams.

There are a lot of fads, blogs and strong opinions, but then there’s SCIENCE. Science Vs is the show from Gimlet that finds out what’s fact, what’s not, and what’s somewhere in between. We do the hard work of sifting through all the science so you don't have to and cover everything from 5G and Pandemics, to Vaping and Fasting Diets.

Easy to digest

Science mixed with pop culture, hot topics & nagging questions. Don’t be fooled by the jokes as the science presented is peer-reviewed & fact-checked.
A great service, the world needs more of these podcasts!

Informative and easy to understand

In this podcast, Science is made understandable and brought with humour. I like the topics they choose, they are controversial and this covering them in a scientific way is refreshing. I love it!

Great, fun summaries on what the facts are one various topics!

Loved most episodes so far.

Super informative

I don't like the hosts' intonation - it's very American, super exaggerated - but if you can look through that, this podcast has a lot of really informative, interesting, and revelating episodes!!

Childish presenter ruins topics

Really interesting stuff but the presenter is so childlike it's annoying. We're talking about suicide and depression and she's telling the story like she's reading a bedtime story to kids.
Subject matter is very interesting but the presentation makes it feel like an afternoon children's special.

science can be fun

A wonderful new discovery from Gimlet Media.
The programme specializes in investigating common beliefs and coming to the conclusion that it is either scientifically valid or not. I love it esp since most times their conclusions correlate to my own uninformed opinions.However, half the fun is the speaking voice of the presentor, Australian Ms Zuckerman. Great accent and her way of presenting is so not pompous and playful. It is a pleasure and I can't wait for the next episode.
Oh by the way, the recent earthquakes in Oklahoma seem at least partly due to the practice of fracking and since the episode a few weeks ago I know all about it.
Keep it up!!
