Episode 0: Introduction

A brief-ish overview of this podcast and what I hope to achieve through it. We also hear from Dana DePietro, a clinical social worker who explains some of the basics about anxiety disorders and their treatment. We talk about the differences between fear and anxiety, an unusual way Joseph Stalin can help you with compulsive behavior, and more.

In case you’re unfamiliar, the DSM refers to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, currently in its fifth edition. Read more about it here.
