I have listened to this a second and third time now. It's a bit of a shame there were only a couple of callers. A few times Jack asks for addicted people to call in but, as interesting as the calls were, I don't think they made full use of his expertise. I also thought it was odd that the host has not read RR:TNC or the Art of AVRT in its entirety.

One point I really like was he said that the disease of alcoholism is an excuse to drink with a Doctor's note.

Having said that I am very grateful to both Jack and the host for bringing us this. If you are familiar with Rational Recovery and have not listened to this yet, I recommend you do.

Also, with knowledge of AVRT behind you, it is amazing how clear the you/it divide becomes.

Finally, I don't think he like it being called 'avert', preferring AVRT.
