Shrink Rap Radio is being featured on the main podcast page in iTunes during the week of Feb. 10, 2008. Not sure how long it will be up but it is thrilling when this happens. Take a look, by clicking here, and you will see that we are in the center of the page right beneath NPR and next to the BBC. Now, they each have budgets of millions of dollars and professional staffs. So, you can see why I’m so thrilled, working as a single individual from a home office, to get this level of attention. And, this is the second time our psychology podcast has been featured on iTunes page! Of course, it wouldn’t happen without the support of loyal listeners who have gone to the trouble of posting such positive reviews on the iTunes site.
Scientific American Mind, which is published by Scientific American, recommended Shrink Rap Radio on page 20 of their August/September 2007 issue. It is very exciting to receive this recognition from such a prestigious and widely-circulated print publication. “Every week psychology professor David Van Nuys of Sonoma State University interviews a leading psychologist about his or her specialty, covering a broad range of topics from mental health to spirituality and even business leadership. The animated discussions often delve into the personal lives of the host and guests, offering listeners a rare glimpse of the people behind the science.”

Listener Brandon Dennis who is a librarian at the Mental Health Education and Resource Centre in Chistchurch New Zealand sent me this photo of a terrific poster promoting Shrink Rap Radio that he’s put up there in the library.
