    This whole episode Gavin kept describing disassociative episodes, which are part of depression, anxiety, and other mental disorders.

    Yes! I was in a seriously bad cycle with depression where I just felt like shit and every time I started feeling better, I'd strangely miss being sad and hating myself. I'm on antidepressants and it has helped so much the past few months. It was the weirdest addiction I ever had.

    OH my god I have tried describing Little Nemo to so many people and I've never met another person that knew what it was! That movie is horrifying as a child

    Thank You Jeremy Dooley for finally allowing me some piece of mind

    Abs has to do with diet. Working out your whole body is also something you have to do.

    So, this is second time (that I can remember) where the discussion of pink eye has come up. Yes, fecal matter can cause it, but it has multiple potential causes ranging from bacterial to viral lol. Poop isn't the only source.

    So probably already pointed out, but the hot-kid milk mystery snack was candied milk. The package reads: wàng zǐ - niú nǎi táng (旺仔 - 牛奶糖). Wang Zi being the brand name. Not sure why the English would be hot kid... but hey, they have all sorts of strange English names for products in China.

    are y'all aware that the copy of this podcast uploaded to the AH YouTube page is only 11 minutes long? I only mention it because the site doesn't play right on my phone, but YouTube does.

      I saw someone post somewhere that they were only putting 11-12 minute previews for Off Topic on YouTube, with the rest requiring a FIRST subscription to watch.

      I immediately saw that and was like, Gavin's going through some dissociation. Glad I'm not the only dissociation ridden fan.

    As a psych major and someone who has had multiple depressive episodes, the conversation about depression and dissociation was a trial. Ryan and Gavin both meant well, I feel, but were a bit off base. Other people have covered that in the comments, though, so I'm not going to go over it again. All I will say is that I hope that Gavin isn't coping poorly with being alone a lot, and that he surrounds himself with positivity.

    Jeremy, you're a person on a plane. There is no concept of sanity. Sanity is for the ground people.

    I'm shocked they found a way to make Ryan more sinister. Also it makes me happy when they bring up Scrubs.

    Dissociation is also a symptom of anxiety disorders, (anxiety and depression are pretty co morbid), and is actually a pretty vague symptom. That is, I think if that's ALL you're experiencing, and it's not happening too frequently or at inopportune moments like driving a car (i.e. you're not being impaired by it), you mightn't need to worry too much about it. If you've got other symptoms such as panic attacks or generalized anxious moods or consistent low energy or moods, then you should probably pay attention, because now it's not JUST dissociation. And you've sort of already figured out how to ground yourself! --Side note: you can be depressed/anxious for no reason. In fact, you can get depressed because a good but big life event happened! (like a wedding!)
    That was a bit wordy but that's me I guess. Just wanted to put my two cents in :)


    I listened to the audio of this one in the car and boy that was an interesting experience. A lot of candy was heard. (Also Ryan, please please don't drop your voice too much, sometimes I couldn't understand you D:)

    The Witches and James and the Giant Peach scared the crap out of me as a child, I had so many nightmares about them. They still scare me a lot tbh, there's something about them that chills me to the core. Never saw Little Nemo but the way Jeremy described it sounds like something that would've scared me a lot as a kid!

    Shit. I don't have much of a sense of taste or smell. But I don't feel depressed. At least I don't think.

    Low key but also high key hopes Gavin doesn't brush off his "detached from reality" issue he's got going on.

    There's a difference between a best by and a use by in terms of expiry dates. A use by should be thrown out after that date, a best by will still be useful for some time after. The longer the period of time between manufacture/sale and best by, the longer the product is still edible after the fact.
