The TalkSpace Story Cupboard
I've been seeing commercials for TalkSpace on TV and wondering if anyone would really pay $35 a week to talk to an unknown psychiatrist on their phone. For one thing - how on earth do you know for sure that the person is a real doctor? Then you begin to wonder - what if the government can actually hear these conversations and is doctor/patient confidentiality even possible. Imagine admitting that you're a serial killer or on the verge of killing someone. And if you think even farther what about a service that provides a priest for confessions - you have all the same concerns. If you care to step into the spec-fiction arena with this one how about a group of aliens listening in to observe the mental state of Earthlings. What an earful they'd get. Sanity or insanity? You story is just a phone call away from your imagination.
