The Broken Brain
Happy International Podcast Day

Happy International Podcast Day Braniacs! A little bit from Dwight today about this wonderful new holiday, and the chance it gives us to take stock of our own passions, hobbies, and interests. Hear 3 (or 4 maybe?) tips for embracing your passions for your mental health, stuff that I have picked up through years of counseling. 

You should read Maisha Johnson's article "KEEP JOY ALIVE: PUSUING MY PASSION FOR MY MENTAL HEALTH," and Kelsey (from wearthelabel.com)'s "HOW MY PASSIONS HAVE HELPED MY MENTAL HEALTH," as your new IPD tradition. 

The Broken Brain is looking for more listener questions as well for our next #AskATherapist segment, coming soon. email me at dwigthhurst@gmail.com or tweet @breakabrain if you gots any.

Relationship Dynamics in "Crazy Stupid Love"

Anyone who knows Michael Denniston knows he is a born romantic, helpless in the face of any emotionally laden romantic fiction...well maybe...

Whether or not that is true, he did get Married last week! Congrats to Mike and Brittany on their nuptials. To celebrate this The Broken Brain is releasing this episode we recorded earlier this year, all about relationship dynamics as depicted in the 2011 film "Crazy Stupid Love."

We talk about relationships, fidelity, love, masculinity, a little about childhood development, and a whole lot about RyRy Gosling.

When he isn't honeymooning, Michael hosts his own podcasts about movies (War Machine vs War Horse, and Original Remake) and is lord and master of the Following Films Podcasting Network. 

By the way the picture attached to this episode is of course me and Michael. Vote which one you think is which @breakabrain, #whichiswhich
