Yes, I'm also impressed (not surprised) by how well these TOTW discussions consistently turn out. I'd feel the same apprehension, and might outright refuse to speak publicly about something I'm ignorant of. Yet the sincere and open engagement with the topic is very appealing, makes one feel comfortable about being ignorant about certain things and makes one feel uninhibited to explore our passing curiosities in these topics in conversation which is more easy-going than jumping straight into a thick tome on any given topic.

And speaking of trauma, when I saw the 1st song listed, i braced for the impact thinking it was going to be this one:

that was really popular. like 6 years ago or something.
also, i think that non-anarchist forms of therapy totally exist. like, seeing someone because you're court ordered to, or seeing a person you put all your faith into (because you know doctors=god or whatever), or seeing someone who can put you away and/or medicate you against your will... i don't know, maybe those things don't happen any more, but... seems like there are certainly forms that are more along values of decentralization, trusting ourselves, flexible perspectives on sanity, etc, that got short shrift in the conversation (which is ok - no conversation will say everything, of course).

Any link or artist for the Trauma Song? I want to download the full version.
