This week on the Writer's Detective Bureau, therapy, overdose, and veiled threat. I'm Adam Richardson and this is the Writers Detective Bureau.
Welcome to episode number 50, 50? Holy cow. Episode number 50 of the Writer's Detective Bureau.

50 episodes. Man, where has the time gone? These last 50 episodes have flown by and honestly they have been a blast, so thank you so much for listening to the show and sending in your questions week after week. And speaking of sending in questions, I think some of you are reluctant descending questions. You don't have to listen to the entire back list of episodes. I mean, I encourage you to do so, but you don't have to in order to send in a question. If it's been asked before, I may cover it again or I may send you a thank you note with a link to where it's all ready been answered. Either way, you will get an answer. It may take some time, but I will get you that answer eventually. Even if it's a question I've answered before, it may allow me a chance to go on a tangent to cover a topic that we haven't talked about before. And more importantly, it isn't a stupid question. There are no stupid questions. Okay. Actually that's a lie. There are stupid questions, but they usually come from stupid people and stupid people are not my audience. You the smart, well-read, slightly off-kilter, lovers of mystery suspense and the occasional serial killer investigation. You my friend are why I do this podcast week after week. So put your double brim Sherlock hat on and send me a question right now. You can go to writersdetective.com/podcast.

I promise one of these days I will start batch recording these episodes. Anyway, yesterday and today we're mainly spent driving from one end of the state to the other and back. And on the drive, I started listening to the audio book, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, by Lori Gottlieb. Without giving you any spoilers, it's a bout a therapist going to therapy. Not only is it like laugh out loud, funny in many parts. It's very poignant, I guess would be the way to put it. It is not a self-help book, it's more of a memoir, but we get to learn from her through the process.
And the people she describes in this book who I assume are amalgamations of real people with names changed to protect the guilty and they're peculiar personality traits. You can't make up the things that are described. I mean, sometimes truth is more amazing than fiction, but some of the personality traits that she describes are so spot-on... Continue reading...
