    I think you were wrong with EMDR. It is an established clinical practice for anxiety disorders, especially for PTSD. There are studies showing that it is helpful in these conditions, e.g. a Cochrane review for PTSD. (If you accept that randomised clinical trials of psychotherapy (wich are unblinded) are a valid prove of efficacy in general.) It’s a form of exposure therapy. There is a debate if the eye movement plays a role, and there are studies showing that the eye movement might is not necessary. In my personal opinion it is the exposure that works, but it might help the patients to risk an exposure, because there is something they can do during exposure.

    Just listened to the latest show and as usual… Been listening since I met @MrMMarsh at the skeptics conference here in Stockholm about 2 months ago…

    Anyway… About Amazon Draught House. Are y’all against it? I’m curious, because it’s one of the things I miss most from home (see… in spite of my crazy Scandinavian name, i’m actually from Texas). I’m always wondering why it’s not something I can find here in Europe (well, sweden specifically), but maybe I’ve just missed the point. Were you put off by the service? I’m not judging, just asking. May be an interesting view into a significant cultural difference…. We Americans always wanna eat :>

    Love the show!!!

    Smashing show again, as usual many LOL moments…

    I can understand Mr Marshall’s confusion with IMHO…I have known folks use it for both humble and honest, when I first came across it I thought it meant humble, then, as a noob at sites I was ‘educated’ as to its two meanings…I’d not be surprised if it has dual meanings generally in the future, quite often I have used it as honest, as the entire point of an acronym is to shorten comments, and what am I meant to use for my honest opinion?

    I can’t see much of a problem with duality, the context usually makes it clear, and for sure the English language has many words with more than one meaning.
