Carmody Central is a lifestyle podcast centered around real topics in culture, comedy, sexuality, and "the unknown." Each episode features one topic and guest, ranging from comedians, specialists, drag queens, and more. Jennifer Carmody hosts her namesake podcast without reserve, in a free form style allowing the topic to breathe and often go in unusual directions. It can best be described as eavesdropping on your neighbor's psychotic conversations.

John is a psychotherapist specializing in OCD, anxiety disorders, phobias and more.  He’s the author of “Retrain for Anxious Brain” and he is here today to answer some questions about OCD.  First we are discussing, the levels of OCD and how minor tendencies can actually be beneficial to a person.  He explains that these tendencies can lay dormant or be functional for a long period of time before getting triggered and turning into impairing OCD.  We talk about the differences of OCD and OCPD, personality disorders… I ask him about this new “Selfie Disorder” that just was announced earlier this week.  We talk about hoarding and how it’s the same but opposite to OCD. And we are talking about if its genetic or developed. This is a really informative episode, so share with anyone you know suffering with OCD or anxiety.

This is one of the older episodes of Carmody Central with comedian Jose Sarduy.  We originally were going to have a funny conversation about growing up Catholic, but it turned into a heated convo about whether God exists at all.  I personally struggle with those ideals, but here's the dialog of us working it out.
