Reflections on the First Month of Talk with Tenney In a burst of energy in the middle of the night of May 16, 2014, I decided to establish a call-in radio talk show. Uncertain of what this really entailed, I embarked on this journey and have become more amazed with each step. One of the main findings of the (de)VOICED, research I conducted through the PhD Program in Environmental Psychology at the Graduate Center, City University of New York, was that when people speak out against the biomedical model of psychiatry, they are silenced and retaliated against. I thought, in the middle of the night a month ago, that if there was a public place that people could call-in and discuss their experiences with and perspectives on psychiatry, that they would. I am amazed at the response and thank all of the people who have assisted in making this happen! The first month of the Talk with Tenney show, which airs 9-11 PM Eastern Time has been listened to over 3,000 times, has had dozens of callers, and two specials on electroshock. Guests, from the United States and Canada have included people who are: Psychiatric survivors; Users of psychiatry; Advocates; Activists; Life Coaches; Peer workers; Spiritualists; Veterans; Authors of books and articles on psychiatry and anti-psychiatry; Psychologists who work to expose psychiatry; and Those who have stumbled over the show, calling in to learn about these human rights violations that psychiatry commits, which they thought were long-ended. www.Laur
