I don’t think you can find anyone who has done so many studies of suicide and suicide prevention or who has served as external scientific advisor on so many multilevel community base studies than me who is so critical of the suicide prevention industry . However this podcast consists of a lot of bombastic nonsense with the person being interviewed praising himself and trashing everybody else in the most nihilistic manner. it’s too bad the transcript is not available so that I could be more specific. But this hot air is hazardous to critical thinking and and preserving some important substantive findings. Well done suicide research does not fail when it casts doubt bad highly plausible hypotheses or corrects some previously on examined assumptions. A lot of erroneous statements are passed off as the truth simply because the person being interviewed has some strange anecdotes or simply said so.
