    Really hope this is not goodbye forever, but I totally understand. I’ve been a silent listener for quite some time. Really loved this podcast. Probably one of my favorites.

  • Great Show!

    Love this show and definitely sad to hear you’re taking a break! I 100% got what Ben was talking about in the last episode. When your passion for understanding something leads to peaking too far behind the curtain, it can definitely leave a bad taste in your mouth. Cheering you on as you re-connect to the work you love in a new way. Good luck!

  • Sad to see you go!

    Sad to see you go! I wholeheartedly resonate with your cynicism, Ben. It's incredibly disheartening to witness people blindly following the marketing hype, and it often feels like we're fighting an uphill battle. All I can express is the urgent need for more voices like yours (Carrie and Ben) in the field of therapy. Academics tend to converse among themselves, but your passion for therapy reaches a far broader audience. I extend my best wishes to you and eagerly await your return!

  • Thought provoking

    I love the insight that you both share! I am glad that y’all take devils advocate and try to always critically think about the therapy world ☺️ it’s refreshing for me as I am learning more about what type of clinician I would like to become. Keep up the great work!

  • It's a mixed bag.

    I enjoy different takes on popular therapies. I love the information provided. But sometimes, the hosts are condescending about the therapies they do not believe in. I believe you can have an opinion. But, it is another thing to laugh at and mock therapists who do not follow the same path you do.
