This is a podcast of learned doctors! But unlike Dale and Brennan, we actually mean it. That’s right, this week Dr. Fran and Dr. Sam take on the comedy cult classic, Step Brothers.
They discuss “failure to launch”—not an actual diagnosis, but another great movie—and the sometimes precarious nature of transitioning to adulthood. How common is it for adult children to live at home with their parents?
Then like Dale’s fist into Derek’s face, they dive right into the explosive family dynamics. What level of sibling rivalry is considered “normal?” And is Derek’s narcissism clinical? (Pow!) Plus, is the portrayal of sleepwalking accurate?
Finally, Dale and Brennan go to therapy. We assess Dr. Angel Face’s clinical performance and how to ward off romantic interest from your patient. Plus, some PhDonts like maybe don’t fantasize your patient is a lumberjack who traveled 500 miles to give you his seed.
Come for the laughs. Stay for a way-more-in-depth psychological analysis of Step Brothers than you ever thought was possible. And at the end of this episode, you just might be asking yourself, “Did we just become best friends?” Yup!
