Welcome to the third season of Talking Brains. Today's guest, Rick Moskovitz, appeared in season 1 where we discussed memory and trauma. Rick is back to talk about his new science fiction trilogy and his fiction writing process as a psychiatrist and scientist. Rick Moskovitz is a Harvard educated psychiatrist who taught psychotherapy and spent nearly four decades listening to his patients tell their stories. After leaving practice, he in turn became a storyteller, writing science fiction that explores the psychological consequences of living in a world of expanding possibilities, including even the prospect of evading death. His characters deal with enduring moral and emotional struggles against a backdrop of a near future world that is still dealing with environmental crises as it navigates the intersection of human and artificial intelligence. The host of Talking Brains is Stephanie Sarkis PhD.
