Coronavirus conspiracies & compulsive sexual behaviour with psychologist Marcus Squirrell

This week we’re joined by queer psychologist Dr. Marcus Squirrell to discuss compulsive sexual behaviour, including its links to internalised homophobia and more frequent encounters of cheating, as well as how shame is experienced by people dealing with sexual compulsions during the pandemic. We also chat about Melbourne’s renewed coronavirus battle and some of the crazier COVID-related misinformation floating about (no, Bill Gates isn't using nasal swabbing tests to implant microchips into the back of your throat). And in this week's After Show we discuss Facebook's hate speech dilemma and the fall out of the Stop Hate For Profit campaign. Sign up to access all of our After Shows at
