Max discusses with Professor Jonathan Metzl, MD, Ph.D., professor of Psychiatry and Sociology at Vanderbilt University, where he directs the Center for Medicine, Health, and Society. The conversation covers his broad scholarship, beginning with his book "Protest Psychosis," and factors that shape the overdiagnosing of Black men with schizophrenia, medicine's attempts at medicalizing racism. Then they dovetail into his book "Dying of Whiteness" in relation to major events in 2021, including the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6th, the fight for (and resistance against) safe gun policies, equitable healthcare, and what it all means in our current political context.
