With their episode on Philip Rieff’s Triumph of the Therapeutic of two weeks ago, Know Your Enemy guys Matt & Sam have done three Freud- or Freudians-themed shows now. Let’s call it a trilogy. That one I’ve listened to several times already, and this eventually (today) turned me back to the earlier two.
The second, on Lasch, I’ve mentioned before, in a longer post last year. For my money, it remains the most fun to listen to of these. But each is really good.
[UPDATE: The Lasch episode is of the three also the least directly concerned with 20th-century Freudian currents. A decent supplement here might be James de Llis’ (James Ellis) 2020 conversation with Lasch biographer Eric Miller.]
