There is another installment of the ShrinkRap blog associated ‘My Three Shrinks’ podcast – episode 53. The three psychiatrists review a film and a book in their typically informal style. Along the way they get into a heated discussion of portrayal of doctors in film and television, a subject which in itself has attracted research and which has been written about by authors with an interest in the intersection between mental health and film in books (e.g Gabbard and Gabbard, 1999) and in blogs (e.g see review here). As in previous podcasts, My Three Shrinks is an enjoyable way to spend 30 minutes and as well as looking at psychiatry in popular culture (which has been the feature of blogs such as The Sports Psychiatrist and Psychiatry in the Mainstream) a big part of the podcast is about three friends who are also psychiatrists.
