115 | Leaning Over the Edge: The Call of the Void | Why We Do What We Do
What to Expect
Sometimes you might find yourself entertaining self-destructive thoughts such as jumping from a high place, or driving off the road. Edgar Allen Poe referred to this as the “Imp of the Perverse.” But why do we experience these things? Does everyone experience this? What does it all mean? Shane and Abraham take the jump and dive into this topic that lures us over the edge. Listen in as we unpack what is happening when we have these strange impulses to do harm.
