Episode 93: Smollop: The Three Jesuses

Dave: The doctor wrote a book on the subject titled–
Gareth: –I’m An Asshole.

And here it is:

The Three Christs of Ypsilanti * Milton Rokeach

The title shows no remorse. If the title of your study sounds like an Eagles song, you’re not sorry.

The two women who thought they were each the Virgin Mary: Harper’s Magazine, 1955, volume 99

My Voice Will Go with You: The Teaching Tales of Milton H. Erickson

Song dedication for the victims (not patients, victims) of “Doctor” Rokeach: Joseph Castle, Clyde Benson, and Leon Gabor: Men at Work’s ode to paranoia. I am so sorry that bastard experimented on you:

Media recommendations if you found yourself oddly fascinated by this episode:

  • book: The Bell Jar is the gimme choice, so I will also add I Never Promised You a Rose Garden by Joanne Greenberg (both based on true experiences)
  • tv: American Horror Story: Asylum (horror): very honest look at asylum hospitalization in the 1950’s and 1960’s in the United States, including homosexuality reconversion therapy and experimenting monster psychiatrists–not for the squeamish
  • movie: The Dream Team (comedy): funny but sweetly honest. Someone told me that he saw himself in Christopher Lloyd’s severely controlled and controlling obsessive-compulsive personality disordered patient, and it helped him to laugh at himself.

Bands from this episode:

  • Meeting of the Messiahs
  • InterChrist Contact
  • Corpse Puppets
  • Madame Yeti Woman

About Carla

This Bluestocking bookworm is your friendly Dollop web-wrangler and digital library curator. In other words, pay no attention to that woman behind the curtain. I'm just here to John Nash all this stuff together. It's all about connections. IT'S ALL CONNECTED. I live atop a mountain, geographically isolated for the protection of others. Yes, an American mountain.
