The Nice Jewish Fangirls return, and this time, they’ve got a professional! Dr. Avigail Gordon joins the NJFs to explore and explain depictions of mental health and therapy in popular culture, from Monk and Frasier, to Batman and Daredevil. What works when exploring mental health in fiction? What really doesn’t? And how can artists do right when exploring mental health in the future?
In this episode, SM, Tamar, Michal, and Avigail also obsess over The Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir, a very millennial movie projector, The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal, and The Power by Naomi Alderman.
