Raising awareness on Joe Rogans podcast


Recommended Posts

Hi, I was wondering whether maybe we could start a petition to get David Healy, Joanna Moncrieff or someone like them on the Joe Rogan show to discuss the issues surrounding antidepressants and psychiatry in general. Personally I think it would be a great way to raise awareness about about the isssues surrounding antidepressants that are rarely or reluctantly covered in the media. Someone aired the idea the in the PSSD forum, but I thought we could get a lot more people behind it if we reached out to people suffering from harms of AD's in general and to make the topic of conversation the problems of antidepressants and biological psychiatry in general. David Healy or Joanna Moncrieff would be my favourite candidates to petition to get on the show, so if you can think of better options I'd love it hear it.  Joe Rogan has on the largest audiences in the world, so the ripple effect from whatever will be discussed there will spread. Personally I think it's a great idea. Let me know what you think about it.
