Sasha launches new podcast

Psychotherapist Sasha Bates' new podcast discusses how fictional TV characters behave
9 Feb 2023
OE news

Sasha Bates (Nugent 1984-86) has launched a new podcast with actor and comedian Ben Bailey Smith, in which they put their favourite fictional characters such as Shiv from Succession, Omar from The Wire and Ross from Friends on the couch to analyse why their behaviour causes them so much drama.

Sasha and Ben explore why these characters make certain decisions, what would happen if they made different ones and what we can learn from their mistakes.

The podcast, called Shrink the Box, can be found wherever you get your podcasts. Sasha says that it is a light-hearted and hopefully entertaining way to discuss and demystify therapy via in depth explorations of the fictional TV characters we know and love. The perfect combination of psychology, self-help and the best TV since the birth of the box-set.
