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.

This is the 2nd half of last weeks episode with Ashely Currie. Hoverboards, I am such a fan of them and they literally make Ashley's skin crawl.  We talk about firemen and a crazy story of Ash almost getting poisoned in her apartment over a strip club in NY.  We are talking about mental illness and depression, Robin Williams, death and the way our society shuns it.  Also we are talking about trolling and my youtube stalker who wants to kill me... and how I attempted to get this guy banned from America and called the FBI on him.

Ashley Currie is back and this is part 1 of our usual 2 part discussions.  Today we are talking about the social media backlash any time someone messes up.  No need to be proven guilty, if the internet thinks you're guilty... Good luck. We are talking about Making a Murderer, Bill Cosby, and others.  We are also talking about Therapy and why it works for some and not for others.  Plus tons of other silliness, and seriousness, and we talk about death as usual.

Welcome back everyone, after a much needed break in December, Carmody Central is back.  What a way to kick off the new year with psychotherapist and author, John Tsilimparis.  Today we are discussing The Denial of Reason. We are branching off of one of John's Huffington Post articles about how many conversative candidates have rejected reason.  How Ben Carson believes that Satan is partly responsible for Darwin's evolution theory.  Seriously, he said that! How George W Bush said that God told him personally to free the Iraqi people.  And how big of a part religion plays on the Republican side of things, especially when it comes to making laws.  Believe whatever you want, I for sure am a believer in many crazy things, but you need to be logical if you're writing the laws and legislation in this crazy country we call 'merica.
