SHOW INTRODUCTION:

If you’ve ever struggled with anxiety or depression, then do we have the Lost Connections show for you!

Today I’ll be talking with Johann Hari, award-winning journalist, the best-selling author of at least seven books including “Chasing the Scream“, Ted-Talker Extraordinaire (his talk on connection has been viewed over 25 million times), and the author of a brilliant new book on Depression, “Lost Connections“.

And that’s just what I want to talk with him about today, about uncovering the real causes of depression and the unexpected solutions.
