Nothing’s changed. Gone nowhere. Done nothing. I am nothing. I feel embarrassed doing the intros for these now because just I’ve, I’ve nothing new to report. And also, there’s so many more interesting and terrifying things happening in the news. So I guess myself has just been consumed by the outside. I wonder if you feel the same. 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
