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.
