Thank you so much for your lovely messages about Catherine Bohart’s episode last week, where we talked at length about mental health, in particular, OCD. I’ve received so many personal and loving messages and messages from people who’ve passed it on to family members who are struggling with the condition. And so I really, really appreciate the recommendations you send me. And I really want to know who you want me
