Behold The Cathartic Power Of Screaming In Rush Hour
Nothing triggers rage quite like traffic
That ‘s why we have screaming though. And actually, you should really use it. This is of course something that a renaissance man like Alex Greer understands: screaming can be good for you. In fact, there ‘s actually a therapy built around it.
It ‘s called Primal Therapy. Invented by Dr. Arthur Janov in the late 1960 ‘s, it is a practice that allows someone to face their repressed emotions from past trauma head on and let those emotions go.
Anyone who ‘s ever been in bumper-to-bumper traffic for over an hour knows deep down the traumatic nature of this experience.
And Richard, the guy Alex is interviewing in this episode of The Traffic Show, seems like he could use a bit of primal screaming.
Things we learn about Richard
- He ‘s a plumber, but not the sort who hunts turds. This guy builds houses. Important distinction.
- He ate part of a bean salad for lunch
- He enjoys ‘mediating his conscious experience ‘
- His wife is not into this at all
