    One more thing.
    If I were prone to conspiracy theory, this (the deletion of the podcast) would've been an anomaly I could hang to.

    Glad you asked. For some reason, episode 41 was removed from my site. I'll put it back up. In the meantime, here is the link to the audio in which Scott Lilienfeld and I discuss the criticisms of the EMDR technique:

    Hi! Congratulations for your show. I've been a listener of it from around a year. I already listened to all the episodes. This is one of the best psychology podcast I listen.

    I have one question:

    I was looking for some info about the EMDR and I noticed that in your website you don't have the episode 41 about it criticism. Is there any way to have access to It?
    I've listened to the episodes were you talk about it, but I don't remember (I'll have to listen to them again) what's your conclusion about it and if I got to listen episode 41.

    Thanks for the help.
    Great podcast!
