20. Columbine: 20 Years Later

It has been 20 years, an entire generation, since the landmark mass school shooting that changed everything. Dr. Scott & Dr. Shiloh attempt to bring awareness to the impact the event had on April 20, 1999 and what we have learned since then. They discuss the contagion or “Columbine Effect” of media coverage of mass shootings, murder-suicide & stress event symptomology while not glamorizing the shooting or naming the murderers. They also look at the phenomenon of “Columbiners” and today’s state of school safety.

Although a serious subject, the doctors manage to work in a lighter mood and talk about Dr. Scott’s former dancing career.

13. Incels

Dr. Scott and Dr. Shiloh discuss one of their most interesting topics to date: Incels or the “involuntary celebates.” They talk about the origins and evolution of the incel community and touch on various flavors of diagnoses that appear to be prevalent with these individuals. They also highlight three high-profile cases of violence perpetrated by men who aline with the incel worldview and discuss those individuals’ motives and psychological diagnoses. Lastly, they touch on the field of Threat Assessment and the lack of research currently published about this disturbing population.
