New Episode

Although Speaking of Jung has been on hiatus since July, a special episode was recorded on Nov. 27, 2018 when Jungian analyst and author David Schoen returned to the podcast to discuss LSU football, the archetypal, psychological and Jungian dynamics underlying being a sports fan, and the brain tumor that nearly took his life. This episode is inspired by his memoir, Always a Fighting Tiger.

Next Episode

The next episode will be recorded on Dec. 14, 2018 with Zürich-trained Jungian analyst Dr. James Scherer in Hartford, Connecticut. We will address the question, Why is Jung important to our times?
