Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson and Oxford University psychologist Dr. Kevin Dutton will be launching a new podcast, called “Psycho Schizo Espresso,” on October 31. After that date, new episodes will air every other Tuesday.
The following was said about the podcast:
“If psychology was a country, then it would be the world’s top tourist destination bar none. It’s an enchanted territory with something for everyone: from aliens to drug lords, from serial killers to conspiracy theories. Join intellectual explorers Bruce Dickinson and Dr. Kevin Dutton for an Indiana Jones style adventure through some of its most far-flung corners as they delve into the psyches of rock icons, sporting superstars, and special forces soldiers and get the latest tips and insights from some of the most respected thought leaders and brain scientists on the planet. If you’ve ever wondered whether psychopaths like Hannibal Lecter and Patrick Bateman really exist outside the imaginations of Hollywood screenwriters and film directors, why ghosts only seem to appear at night, and about the true meaning of the Book of Revelation’s most enduring and enigmatic mystery — 666, the number of the beast — then welcome aboard Flight Psycho Schizo Espresso and observe the ‘fasten seatbelt’ sign!”
“Not long after meeting Bruce, it became instantly clear to me that we shared a number of wide-reaching interests and that we should channel that into a podcast. ‘Psycho Schizo Espresso’ is certainly a journey of exploration for the both of us, and we are sure our listeners are going to learn a lot from our guests. Whether from the music industry, academia or elsewhere — you may, for instance, share our interest in psychopaths, both good and bad — this is certainly a podcast that we feel everyone will enjoy and should go and subscribe to straight away.”
The first episode will be part one of a discussion with New Testament scholar Professor Steven J. Friesen from the University of Texas. That chat will be “exploring the devil’s role in heavy metal and decoding one of the Bible’s most impenetrable secrets — the hidden meaning behind 666, “The Number Of The Beast” — a number that’s certainly featured prominently in Bruce’s career.”
