Shrink2Shrink's podcast

Like Siskel and Ebert with a psychological twist. Shrink 2 Shrink is not a movie review show, we use the movies to discuss relationships, psychology and the inner world of our thoughts. Listen here as two relationship therapists have some fun analyzing all things relationships through the lens of popular movies. We’ll play movie clips and discuss them to educate you while having some fun talking about the scene. We’ll be covering friendships, intimacy, dating, how to fight fair, addictions, parenting, depression, emotion management, marriage, divorce, grief, joy and really, anything else about relationships we can find! A new episode launches the last day of each month. You will learn AND have a bit of fun. Colleen Mullen and Courtney Calkins are licensed Marriage and family Therapists in California. This show is for entertainment purposes only.

Shrink2Shrink podcast – Like Siskel & Ebert, with a psychological twist!  


On this episode of @Shrink2Shrink we psychologically dismantle the 2015 movie Creed.  Here, our 2 shrinks Dr. Colleen Mullen and Courtney Calkins  discuss themes from the movie and explore what we can learn for our own lives using the themes of the film: family ties, what makes a family, and how Adonis Creed makes sense of being born to the incredible Apollo Creed – he never knew his father, but he has the same passion for boxing as his father.  We also explore how living with a legend in the family can be something that can open doors for us, but can also be something we want to keep hidden. Then, we get to reminisce about our love for the icon of Rocky Balboa as a cultural icon and the spark that the stories ignite in each one of us and why.  What is it about his achievements, his love of both boxing and Adrian (“Yo, Adrian!”) that inspire us?  Listen in as we examine love, relationships, loneliness, overcoming obstacles, resiliency and following your passions.


Next Shrink2Shrink podcast will examine the movie Zootopia
