DWA: Driving While Anxious (Podcast)

Posted Feb 10 2009 12:12pm


On today’s podcast I discussed the finer points of driving while anxious. I recruited my younger brother to share with you his phobia - driving. I recently received a request from an Anxiety Guru reader who wanted this topic reviewed so we beat this issue to near death on our quest for driving nirvana.
