22 - Aviophobia (Fear of Flying): why are so many of us afraid of flying?

To kick off the new year, Hunter and Amy take a quick look at aviophobia. We talk about how a fear of flying develops and the way your sensitivity to body anxiety symptoms influences  fear. To wrap up, Hunter muses over why we (used to) send Christmas cards and Amy rants about the Tooth Fairy's inequitable behaviour. 

We are going to take a few weeks off at the start of January (2018) but will be back with new pods at the end of Jan so check your feed and make sure you follow us on twitter.
