No matter what your take on the events that surround the whole covid situation, the one thing that everyone can agree on is that the landscape has drastically changed. For months we were forced into isolation with nothing more than a digital outreach to everyone around us. To say that it has altered a major component of our psyche would be a gross understatement. This week on The Malliard Report Jim welcomes back a fan favorite and show regular to discuss the new wave of upcoming “sociopaths.” This week features the one and only Rebecca Housel.

“Rebecca Housel, Ph.D., known as The Pop Culture Professor, is an international best-selling author and editor in nine languages and 100 countries. Rebecca, listed in the Directory of American Poets & Writers for her work in nonfiction, was nominated by Prevention magazine essayist and best-selling author of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Rebecca Skloot, to the National Association of Science Writers for her work on cancer. Rebecca has published with best-selling author of The Accidental Buddhist, Dinty Moore's literary nonfiction journal, Brevity, and with commercial publications like Redbook magazine and online journals like In Media Res. Her recent interviews appear in publications such as the LA Times, Esquire, USA TODAY, The Huffington Post, Inside Higher Ed, Woman's World magazine, and Marie Claire as well as on FOX news, and NBC Dr. Housel currently works on the Editorial Advisory Boards for the Journal of Popular Culture and the Journal of American Culture; she has also worked as a reviewer for Syracuse University Press and Thomson Wadsworth. A writer of all genres, Housel has written and published both fiction and nonfiction in over ten books and 398 articles, essays, book chapters, book reviews, and encyclopedia entries.”

Dr. Housel stresses the importance of mental health and that we all should be aware for ourselves and those around us. We cannot express enough that you should never feel embarrassed or that you can’t reach out for help. There are always resources available and many people willing to provide them. You can keep up with all of Dr. Housel’s work at or through most social media platforms. For all things Malliard, head over to to catch up on past shows, sign up for the newsletter and so much more.
