How Trauma Language Gets Abused
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Just in time for May the 4th, it's our 3rd episode! And not only is today Star Trek day, it's also Coree's birthday! May she live long and prosper.

Look, y'all. Our culture has mainstreamed a lot of psychological terms lately. And yeah, it's good to have the right language to identify and express your mental state. But maybe we've gone a little too far. If you're accusing the cashier at Wendy's of "gaslighting" you because they forgot to put barbecue sauce in the bag, it might be time to take that word out of your vocabulary. "Narcissist," "Triggering" and "Trauma" are also on notice, until folks can get their act together.

Oh yeah, and Coree's dad has cancer. So she's got that going on. Y'know, just dad things.
