“The Psychonaut Show,” hosted by Dr. JKB, is on a mission to seek out strange, new worlds in inner space. We discover the tools that psychoanalysts since Freud have used to penetrate the mysterious depths of the unconscious. At times, we go beyond psychoanalysis into the wisdom traditions of both East and West, but always with the practical goal of becoming more effective, more connected, and more attractive in our daily lives.
Dr. JKB is John K. Burton, M.D., a child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, and has been treating patients for more than 20 years. Although he does use medication and evidence-based psychotherapies, he has always found that people respond best when they feel understood. He credits his psychoanalytic training with a framework and tools for understanding even the most confusing situations. His belief that these tools should be available to as many people as possible, without financial or geographical limitations, inspired him to create “The Psychonaut Show” podcast.
