Alex McCarron

Alex talks to psychotherapist, hypnotist and long time Paul McKenna collaborator, Dr Hugh Willbourn about the outbreak of mass psychosis that has enveloped the world. Dr Willbourn postulates that the Covid-19 Lockdown, anti-Brexit hysteria and climate-change panic are all manifestations of millenarian cult-like thinking, where evidence of failed prophesy merely serves to intensify zealotry, rather than diffuse it. 

Along the way the talk about to woke politics as religion, why you should watch less television, and how to avoid destructive behaviours, some of which Alex has indulged in during the lockdown.
