I need to make one of my at this point customary apologies for the dearth of content in this space. But the good news is that I’ve been working on a plethora of horrifically-personal, anxiety-inducing content for your enjoyment. It’s either feast or famine here at Also Sprach Fletchathustra.
Last Wednesday I had the opportunity to appear on the Fox 25 Boston morning show. It’s a quick segment, but does a good job of explaining some of the underlying principles of OCD. And if you’ve read the book and developed an image of me as some slick sonofagun, here’s your opportunity to observe my stiff demeanor and robotic bass monotone firsthand.
And on Friday I was lucky enough to appear on Philadelphia’s Radio Times. I appeared with Dr. Jon Grayson, author of the seminal Freedom from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and was interviewed by the wonderful Maiken Scott. I’m really happy with how this program turned out – we tackle OCD from personal and clinical perspectives, and it seems like we reached a number of parents who had their own stories to share. Trigger warning for suicide and stuff like that.
Finally, I want to point any visitors in the direction of The Disappointments, a sketch comedy group formed by my friends from Swarthmore and I. We had a great show at the college last night, hosted by our sketch comedy alma mater Boy Meets Tractor for their annual Comedy Weekend, so keep an eye on our site – fingers crossed, we’ll have the new material up soon.
So that’s it for now! Assuming trends related to my frequency of posting continue, please check back in six months for a twelve simultaneous posts and a novella, and then in ten years for a 2000-page prose poem retelling of The Odyssey.
