Increased Availability with CorePsych Radio Programs

Heads up for many more CorePsych Radio program choices – only problem: program choice is 52 Pick Up… This quick list can be printed and saved, as for the next 5+ months I will be taking a break from the intensity of the prep work, notification blogging and for the live show.

The folks at My Expert Solutions have a software that will rotate programs – automatically. More shows, regrettably less organization.

To Do List: Pick your best time below to listen, show up on the link over at CorePsych Radio at My Expert Solution Page, listen for which program, download the handout, and get ready for your surprise program.

I  may set up an occasional live show in the meantime, and will blog that prep info before the show. These new live shows will always be aired at the New Live CorePsych Radio time: Tuesday 5 PM ET & 2 PM PT. [You will note that we have added some different times for our English speaking audiences in England and Australia.]

New Pre-Recorded Program Time Choices:

Mon:   7 PM EDT – 4 PM PDT
Tue:    4 PM EDT – 1PM PDT
Wed:   9 PM EDT – 6 PM PDT
Thu:    4 PM EDT – 1PM PDT
Fri:      10 PM EDT – 7 PM PDT
Sat:      6 AM EDT – 3 AM PDT
Sun:     2 PM EDT – 11 AM PDT

Thanks for listening!

  1. Hi Dr. P,

    It’s been a long while but my family and I enjoy keeping up with you through your blog. Unfortunately we aren’t able to listen to the radio show because we only have dial up. Please let us know when you will have the shows in a downloadable format. Thank you for spreading your knowledge!


    • Kat-
      Thanks for staying connected – great hearing from you, hope all is well up there. Two ways to access the radio programs: One now and one in the near future.

      1. You can join My Expert Solution and download everything I have done, everything I will be doing weekly by becoming a member there. Additional value is all the other experts will be available for listening and download anytime as well. They are charging 20$/mo min fee and offering answers to questions as well.
      2. I will be producing the programs on CD as a subject series: the NeuroScience programs will be on one CD, the 10 ADHD Programs will be on one CD etc, don’t have a price on those yet.

      An additional benefit: I am told they will occasionally have programs for free download on the front page so click on the link above to see what’s there. I just went over and I wasn’t on the first page this AM but was told I was yesterday by my radio tech guy out there in Utah.

      Some of these programs will simple be blogged out for ‘no charge’ so stay tuned with the blog here – an example will be the Russell Jaffe MD interview on Immune testing and Brain Function, and an interesting interview with a national level Neurofeedback [NFB] Training Expert [next Thurs]: Kurt Othmer of EEG Info see a YouTube video by Kurt here.

      Good to hear from you, and thanks!

  2. Hello Dr.Parker,

    I just finished listening to your lecture on “Burn Rates” on the net. I have some questions regarding 2D6. I am a 25 year old male diagnosed with Adult ADHD and Depression. My doc prescribed me 60 mg of Cymbalta and 60 Mg of Vyvanse. We Started on 30 Mg of Vyvanse but i felt i wear off in roughly 3 hours. We upped the dosage to 60 Mg and i feel like it wears off after roughly 6 hours. From what i found on the net it seems that Cymbalta inhibits CD6. Could this be preventing the Vyvanse from working correctly? Are there any anti-depressents that don’t interact with Vyvanse?

    • John,
      You are right in catching Cymbalta, tho many of my colleagues say it is not a problem, I have seen it create problems at higher doses… Wellbutrin has the same reactivity, can create a problem over time, not usual at first blush.

      My favs are Effexor XR, Pristiq, Lexapro and Celexa, – the wearing off is all related to too low a dose, will be covering DOE more in the show later. Search it here on this blog and you will see much on the DOE, and go to the EzineArticles link as well, much there.

      Thanks for listening! – Server should be up and running next week,

  3. I’m unable to catch your radio show during the day. Will you have them on podcasts?

    • Amy,
      Will be having them available in the future in some form, – am trying to decide what to do… I am beaming out of a memberships site where they will soon be available @
      thnx for asking!

    • Plan to have them available in next mo or so, don’t know format yet, thnx, cp

  4. Many thanks to listeners who are taking the time to join me for CorePsych Radio – This week’s program handout is available for download above – and, just for fun, I tweeted it out, and is available as pdf at #cpradio –

  5. Thanks so much for your comment, and appreciate the concept that I might be geekworthy…. had to tell my wife I was a geek when she, in an effort to be complimentary to our friends, called me a nerd… Interesting inside language! Will go over there now, thanks Greg
