The Dang Lantern Podcast

The Dang Lantern Podcast

A secular weirdo had a spontaneous mystical experience, tried to report it to a scientist to get a brain scan, then got involuntarily committed and told by psychiatrists that mystical experiences don't exist. How is it that neuroscientists are studying the brainwaves and biomarkers that correspond to these non-ordinary states but the mainstream mental industry doesn't acknowledge that they exist? The Dang Lantern Podcast explores consciousness and the ways we talk about it - psychology, neuroscience, spirituality, religion, philosophy, psychiatry, anti-psychiatry etc, as well as ineffability and the many reasons that these things are hard to talk about.

Jami Fregeau is a neurodivergent nurse who goes by the name The Neurodivergent Nurse.

She's the host of an excellent podcast called The Neurodivergent Nurse, and runs one of my top favourite  ADHD instagram accounts, @theneurodivergentnurse.

Jami has a great brain in her skull and I fully dig how she approaches ADHD. 

I talk too much on this one and tried an experiment where I thought I might try to tell every guest the whol...

    In this episode, I read a piece I put on the website Medium in April 2020. It's called: "Spirituality" is like a mode in a Video Game.

    The question, again, is "why would someone act like this if Spiritual experiences practically don't exist, according to the DSM."

     Although brain scans show the related neural activity,  and more and more scientists attest to experiencing them, mainstream mental health nerds do not acknowledge that mystical states exist. As a result, we are pathologizing joy and healing.
