Johann Hari is an international best-selling author, journalist and thinker who has written two books we especially love: Chasing the Scream (about drugs and addiction) and Lost Connections (about what produces depression). So he may be one of the most fitting guests we’ve had.

In this conversation with Bart Campolo, Johann talks about the purpose of pain, the value of community, understanding despair, how people learn social skills and friendship, why our intuitions on addiction may be wrong and our intuitions on depression may be right, the psychological poisons in our culture, releasing shame as an antidepressant, and much more.

All things Johann can be found at JohannHari.com.

…in the nicest possible way. On a recent episode, Bart Campolo casually referred to a bar full of people you might like to strike up a conversation with, saying, “There’s a woman, there’s a man, there’s a woman who used to be a man.” A trans woman called Rya wrote us an email, in the process giving us the perfect model for how to address someone you disagree with. It was so perfect we thought we’d share it.

Also on this episode, the music of New Tycoon (a song called Ancient from the album Wholiness).

How do we recapture political nuance, thoughtfulness and open-mindedness at a time when alternative media has hooked us on politics and broke our democracy?

Claire Potter is a Professor of History and co-Executive Editor of Public Seminar at The New School for Social Research in Greenwich Village, New York City. In this conversation, she and Bart Campolo talk about the state of our political discourse and the attitudes that can promote the change we all want to see.

From a listener:

“I left my faith about 14 years ago. It has been a lonely experience, especially since back then, there wasn’t the same connections through the internet that there are now. It seems like deconstruction is almost pop culture now, and being talked about everywhere. Anyways, I appreciate what you’re doing and I’m inspired by your vision. I still ‘feel’ like a pastor in a lot of ways and like how you are helping people take the good parts of church and recreate them in a new context. I have been thinking about getting connected to others in the same boat as me. People who have left Christianity and are looking for community. I am from Kitchener, Ontario and I wondered if you had any connections to groups that I could connect with up here. I’m looking for a way to just talk about my experience of leaving faith and the lonely place it can be. If you don’t have any recommendations, I’d love any tips or suggestions for getting likeminded people together, online right now because of COVID. I know that’s a big question but any insight would be great.” – Brian

Bart thinks it’s harder as an adult than when you were in high school or college, but has some thoughts that may inspire you to make some practical moves. Some things we mention during the episode:

Recovering from Religion

The Clergy Project

Humanize Me Facebook Group

Brene Brown: The power of vulnerability (TED Talk)

36 questions that lead to love

Secular communities survey

How can we learn to have our disagreements across ideological divides more constructively and respectfully? David C. Smalley may be something of an expert at this point, having conducted hundreds of long-form conversations – many of them with Christians – on his podcast for the last 11 years.

In this episode with Bart Campolo, David talks about how he approaches these on-air disagreements, and what allows him to stay friends with many of his guests after they hang up the phone.

Some takeaways: Keep watch over the temperature of a conversation, break anger with kindness, see insecurities for what they are, understand they see you as a victim of bad ideas, cultivate patience, ask lots of good questions and let them talk (which is actually thinking out loud), ‘put on’ their ideology for the conversation to explore it with them, be a tourist in their world with genuine curiosity.
