This episode comes to you via a Patreon patron! If you pledge $50 or more on our Patreon, you can pick a movie that we will discuss. For our first Patreon request, we are breaking down Martin Scorsese’s 2006 Best Picture winner, The Departed. We explore the psychological differences between the double lives of the two main characters: Billy Costigan and Colin Sullivan. We rip apart it’s horrific (HORRIFIC!) portrayal of a mental health professional via the psychiatrist. We also have a special guest on to discuss the mental health of law enforcement in general, but specifically undercover cops.
