Dr. Lisa Gives a Sh*t
FIxing the Planet One Person at a Time.
DLG1814 A session with Oliver Wasow that isn't in the art materials written about him.
April 16, 2018 04:00 PM PDT
Oliver Wasow is an accomplished and highly original talent. Very sophisticated but almost self taught as he didn't study what his career is about.

This session with artist Karen Marston illuminated my thinking of the discussion around whether you have to have a miserable childhood to be an artist. Personally, I don't think you do, but talking with Karen led me to think there is so much destruction in the world, that having a secure childhood can actually aid an artist to confront a much larger, more universal problem, such as global warming, as opposed to so much navel gazing as artists such as myself focus on for inspiration. Karen's current show at Owen James Gallery is a great example of seducing the viewer into contemplating the destruction of icebergs. We get to hear about her trip to Newfoundland to observe and document them for these paintings. YOU MUST SEE HER SHOW!! Up until April 22, 2018 http://www.owenjamesgallery.com/exhibitions/karen-marston2
DLG1811 Emily Flake is a charmingly self-deprecating, accomplished cartoonist and self-proclaimed procrastinator.
March 28, 2018 04:24 PM PDT
Emily Flake is my cartoonist hero. She’s accomplished so much—had her books published, a New Yorker cartoon contract, has a family, yet she still sees herself as a procrastinator. In my own disbelief, I dig into finding out more about that.
Also, because Emily does a lot of cartooning around parenting – she is happily married and the mother of a five year old – I need to understand more about that, since she’s so calm about something as frightening as motherhood. https://www.amazon.com/Mama-Tried-Dispatches-Underbelly-Parenting/dp/1455558230 Check out Emily’s work here: http://www.emilyflake.com/ Endlessly engaging in person, she performs with on bills with comedians! She does a regular live show with Ophira Eisenburg at Union Hall. https://www.unionhallny.com/events/DLG1810 Celeste Rogers on winning CHOPPED on TV, PLUS dining, dating and divorce.
March 23, 2018 09:12 AM PDT
Celeste combines her science interest (pre-med at one point!) with her food and recipe development talent to win this round on CHOPPED, on the Food Network.
Celeste is possibly the most together positive, productive person ever on Dr. Lisa, so I dig in enviously to see how she does it. Did I also mention that Celeste is super smart, talented and beautiful? Celeste has a whole bunch of natural gifts, but the magic sauce I think, is her discipline. As a kindergartener, she would bug her mother to make sure she got to her dance lessons on time. And getting to the Olympic trials for swimming is not for the unfocused. Somewhere along the way, naturally outgoing Celeste learned that FUN is important too, which is what makes her so balanced. #food #cooking #chef #celesterogersDLG1809 Dr. Lisa coaches Ed Kish to be more selfish.
March 20, 2018 01:49 PM PDT
In this full on psychotherapy session, Dr. Lisa uncovers Ed Kish's childhood conditioning has taught him not to put himself first. Ed is a working and studying acting to become a animation voice-over artist. He is also the partner of one of RFB's favorite hosts, Orie Givens, who hosts: https://radiofreebrooklyn.com/show/queer-state-of-mind/

Thurston Ray http://www.thurstonray.com/ is an incredible musician and I got him to sing A Capella in the studio which you can't hear anywhere else. Thurston was appearing live that night on our RFB showcase at The Well, so I got to ask him about that. Plus in my role as Dr. Lisa, I got to grill him on how his personal love life relates to his music. Thurston was very generous and open, so we got to find out about the road he's on in his personal life and how his family and background plays into that. Hint: He's slow to get involved. A totally handsome, lovable guy, Thurston, thanks for sharing! #music #therapy #RFB #ThurstonRay @ThurstonRayDLG1807 Comedian Kevin McCaffery is not coasting.
March 01, 2018 08:40 AM PST
Kevin talks about how you can never take making a living in comedy for granted. He's made a living as a comedian for the past ten years and he's always working to work harder. Kevin's never been in therapy before, so we explore how his drive and role in his comedy friends may have parallels with his role as the oldest of three boys with a divorced mom household. Kevin gets big kudos here as he does not hold back-what a fabulous patient/guest! @KevinMcCaff http://kevin-mccaffrey.com/ #comedy #psychotherapy #LettermanDLG Dr. Lisa talks to Holly Strange and Charlotte Smart about Shakespeare, men and women
February 26, 2018 02:12 PM PST
Holly has conceived of and is directing a play that Charlotte is acting in. Our conversation starts of the themes in the play: men, women, power, etc. and evolves into a much more personal discussion on our thoughts and opinions. The play is March 4—Tickets HERE:https://artery.is/showcases/the_will_to_fight_women_in_shakespeare2

I learned a lot here. I learned a new view of marriage. There's a lot of intense stuff in here so we decided to keep the name of the guest patient secret. This woman married young, they had two kids and she found out he was cheating. Divorce ensued. 8 years go by and she hears from him again. Here's an account by a strong, smart woman that made me think freshly about the institution of marriage.DLG1204_Fellow RFB "Ben Talks" host, Ben Louis talks recent gf breakup

Dr. Lisa really DOES give a sh*t. Dr. Lisa Levy S.P. (Self-Proclaimed) has been performing psychotherapy on stage, on the street and in her studio/office since 2001, and she’s better than a lot of certified shrinks because psychoanalysis and therapy is not a job for her, it’s an obsession. In these sessions, her subjects will all be interviewed lying down which helps them free associate. Dr. Lisa will get to the essence of what makes people who they are and what their obstacles have been, and maybe help solve some issues along the way. She doesn’t mess around either, why waste time since she’s not making money on having people come back?
Lisa Levy is a conceptual artist, painter, comedic performer and (self-proclaimed) psychotherapist. Her visual art has been widely exhibited at many venues including The New Museum, The Bronx Museum, SPRING/BREAK Art Fair, The Pulse Art Fair and The Brooklyn Academy of Music and Christopher Stout Gallery. As a live performer, her most popular character is Dr. Lisa, S.P. (self-proclaimed) who psychoanalyzes people on screen, stage, on the street and on her weekly Radio Free Brooklyn show. She has performed at countless venues and theaters including The Brooklyn Museum, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Lisa Levy will be debuting a solo show at Christopher Stout’s ADO Projects this November titled, You Can’t Take it With You a humorous perspective on death.
