On August 10, 2019, Todd participated in a CBC Radio ‘Ideas’ panel discussion on the contemporary influence of Sigmund Freud’s thought, moderated by Nahlah Ayed.
From the Stratford website: “Freud started a revolution with the idea that we have an internal emotional life and unconscious drives that shape us and our actions in profound ways. Much of Freud’s clinical practice is sidestepped today, but his basic principles survive – what’s the current state of self-knowledge, and what good has all this done us?”
