My Three Shrinks Podcast

By chance I ran into the podcast My Three Shrinks. I was looking something up on the web about the podcast Shrinkrapradio and found a blog named Shrink Rap which is the written complement to the My Three Shrinks Podcast. There is no relation with Shrinkrapradio and it also has a slightly different focus. Shrinkrapradio is a psychology podcast. My Three Shrinks is a psychiatry podcast.

Three psychiatrists, Dinah, ClinkShrink and Roy, write in the Shrink Rap blog and speak as a panel in the podcast about subjects in psychiatry. As in other panel podcasts, the tone is very light, there are some inside jokes, or maybe running jokes, but there is also the serious talk on various subjects. In the latest show,which was the last of the year edition, they spoke about New Year Resolutions and answered questions received on the blog and discussed the podcast reviews they had on iTunes.

What I like very much about this podcast is the fact that is an enhanced podcast. The cast is also available in regular MP3, but the feed, by default pushes the MA4 format. Users like myself then can enjoy the segments of the show and view their separate titles. The light and natural conversation tone of the show have advantages and disadvantages; it makes it more fun to listen to, but at certain moments can interrupt the handling of the subject go in depth. All in all a good podcast for anybody interested in psychiatry.
