029 - Antidepressants and Fluoride

Jonathan takes Chris to a secret location for a surprise that doesn't end well, and all because Chris allegedly said antidepressants don't work. To clarify, we delve into the causes of depression, how antidepressants work, as well as the safety and effectiveness of SSRIs. Oh, and suicidal children. Also: is putting fluoride in the water a communist plot and will NSAIDs give you a heart attack? 

Special guest voice acting by Jacob Fortin.

Jingle by Jillian Kate.

Additional music by Seth Donnelly and Kevin MacLeod.

Theme music: "Troll of the Mountain Swing" by the Underscore Orkestra.
