Psychiatrist Dr. Nick Pejic hosts MINDSET. Unlike the hosts of many mental health shows, Dr Pejic really is a psychiatrist. Mindset allows Nick to help us understand what motivates successful people, especially New Orleans' best. He's not your dad's Dr. Phil or your grandma's Dr. Laura, and Mindset is not your regular mental health show. Young, dapper Dr Pejic says, "This is New Orleans. We are not about what is wrong with you, we're about what is right with you."
Over Irma Thomas's 50 year career she has won a Grammy, released chart topping hits, and collected a few ex-husbands on the way. She is an institution of the city's music, and is called the Soul Queen of New Orleans.
Dr. Nick sits down with Mrs. Thomas to talk about how she overcame personal and social obstacles to become the success she is today, and why it takes more than a pretty voice to be a success.
Irma talks about to Nick about her childhood, her rise to fame, and her unique perspective on fame and success. Irma's mix of dedication, self-reliance, and the ability to laugh at herself has made her a singer that continues to stay relevant in her city.
