Hi, Achievers! In this episode, we began by discussing some nerdy news (e.g., the truth about Groot, Batgirl the movie). Next, we expressed our thoughts on Walter Sobchak and his anger problems. We talked about intermittent explosive disorder and the types of treatment approaches people use to treat anger problems. Then, we talked about Maude Lebowski and evaluated whether her claim about nymphomania (satyriasis in men) was consistent with the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders formulation. Then, we closed the episode with some discussion of mindfulness. There were many fun tangents involved: some about Frasier and others about Kevin Smith!

Hi, Achievers! It’s almost the 20th anniversary of the classic film, The Big Lebowski! This episode is the first in a series that will explore psychological elements of the colorful, charismatic characters in this film. We began with an overview of connections between the Coen Brothers and the city where we live (Fargo). Then, we geeked out about some of our favorite aspects of the movie. Next, we discussed whether The Dude is experiencing cannabis use disorder or not. For more details on The Dude’s mental health, read our full fictional evaluation of The Dude. Finally, we concluded by speculating about where Walter Sobchak and The Dude would fall on each of the Big 5 personality traits. There are more Lebowski episodes planned.
