Today, on Lake Effect we’ll talk with a survivor of gay conversion therapy and learn how it’s fundamentally changed his life. Then, find out what sociologists might be able to learn about human behavior from the pandemic. We’ll explore alternatives to calling 911 when someone is experiencing a mental health crisis. Plus, the latest Bubbler Talk looks into how Bob Reitman and Gene Mueller ended up in an episode of Cheers.
