Episode 23 – Dazed and Confused (1:41:26)

Alright, alright, alright…if you were listening to our last show and thinking that we should have a guest…as in, “it would be a lot cooler if we did” you’re in luck.  This week’s show is about the coming-of-age high school movie set in 1976, Dazed and Confused with our special guest Mike Brancatelli of the podcast Mikeadelic!

Here is the ridiculously wrong Google description:

This coming-of-age film follows the mayhem of group of rowdy teenagers in Austin, Texas, celebrating the last day of high school in 1976. The graduating class heads for a popular pool hall and joins an impromptu keg party, however star football player Randall “Pink” Floyd (Jason London) has promised to focus on the championship game and abstain from partying. Meanwhile, the incoming freshmen try to avoid being hazed by the seniors, most notably the sadistic bully Fred O’Bannion (Ben Affleck).

And for those reading impaired, the theatrical trailer:

We discuss several themes ranging from the drug war, compulsory schooling, government-induced mental illness and more in this episode.

Here is the Wiki on the movie:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dazed_and_Confused_(film)

Solo Cast. I riff on some ideas about Mental Health, Psychedelics, Culture and the human psyche. May is Mental Health Awareness Month, so I thought It would be a good time to share my story, and talk about some of my own challenges as well as discuss some ideas about the current state of mental health in our world today.
