    Fighting for Freedom in America: Memoir of a "Schizophrenia" and Mainstream Cultural Delusions~


      When anonymous mental health worker Clyde Dee finds himself working in a Section 8 housing project that is notorious for drug dealing, he mysteriously is compelled to break the codes of standard drug war conduct. Uncanny threats and coincidences and desire for justice drive him to question the pillars of his profession and his own wellness until he decides to go off a low dose of anti-psychotic medication. Stopped by police in an effort to exit the country, Clyde is incarcerated in a State Hospital psychiatric ward for three months and released to the streets.
      Unlike other success prototypes such as John Nash or Evelyn Saks, Clyde's story reveals both the innards of Schizophrenia and how a person can learn to make peace with the forces that are following them around. Clyde is able to overcome homelessness, underemployment, and harassment with family support and morph into someone who is fighting to gain attention for his successes in treating others who are in the throes of a "psychotic" episode.

    in Basketball

    We are joined once again by Adam Criblez to discuss the rivalry between the Boston Celtics and the St. Louis Hawks in the late 1950s and early 1960s, continuing our #RussellMania series dedicated to Bill Russell. We go through the Celtics vs. Hawks NBA Finals battles from 1957, 1958, 1960 and 1961, and talk about some of the great performances and players on both sides of the rivalry, one of the greatest Game 7s in NBA history, why the Russell for Cliff Hagan and Ed Macauley trade wasn’t as one-sided as you might think, Bob Pettit delivering one of the best series-clinching games ever, the Celtics’ stability contrasting with the ever-changing Hawks, why the Hawks ended up failing in St. Louis, and thoughts on Red Auerbach, Tom Heinsohn, Slater Martin, Alex Hannum, Bob Cousy, Bill Sharman, Sam Jones, Clyde Lovellette and Lenny Wilkens, among many others.
