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.

Psychotherapist and anxiety specialist, John Tsilimparis, is back and this time we are discussing addiction.  We start with the basics, is it a mental illness? Does self esteem play a role in developing addiction? We discuss overall destructive behavior without substance use and addictive personality types.  We talk about celebrities having the mental make up to develop an addiction.  Then we talk about a pressing topic, the true epidemic in the country, opiates.  We are discussing oxycotin’s origins, their sales, fatal overdoses and the doctor’s that carelessly prescribe them.
