Friday, November 18th— Send in your questions: hello@upcpodcast.com

Questions:
1. Wouldn't the move be - in the case of both Daryl Dixon on TWD and Patty Hearst - to have played along with the captors? Say your name is Neegan?
2. Could Patty Hearst's conditioning from when she was brainwashed resurface later in her life?
3. Why did you do a political show when none of UPC's other content is political?

Because we put so much into our main show that releases on Tuesday morning, we decided to contrast that by pulling back the curtain for this round-table, informal, unedited forum where we answer your questions! UPC UNPLUGGED is live on Fridays to answer the questions YOU send in to hello@upcpodcast.com ! We're excited to hear what you have to say and read your questions on this unedited Friday show!

In this shocking episode of Unpopular Culture, Michael dives deep into a disturbing case of Stockholm Syndrome (or so it seems). Patty Hearst was an American heiress born in the 1950's, whose actions following her own kidnapping left most of America confused and horrified. Many did not believe her eventual claims of being brainwashed and tortured for almost 60 days by the SLA, because of the videos released of her spewing her captor's propaganda messages like "Death to America" and even ROBBING A BANK with her captors in 1974 in the Sunset District of San Francisco. In this episode: licensed psychotherapist, Michael Drane, discuss how being brainwashed works, and how to avoid letting it turn you into a blindly-obedient minion.
