I thought your interview with Katie Roiphe was a model of how to have a serious conversation on something difficult that was challenging while actually listening, Isaac.

One of the things I believe in most strongly is that you should spend a lot of time talking with people who have different politics to you. I know this is unfashionable - & people are even condemned for it - so I’ll give a few reasons.

Too often, we have (with the best of intentions) been fighting stigma against depression and anxiety in the wrong way. I've made this mistake myself. This experiment by Dr Sheila Mehta helped changed my mind:

1) Loved 's last book "Chasing The Scream" and his latest "Lost Connections" is no less affecting. Both books do a fantastic job putting human faces on grim statistics and offer solutions that feel sane, nourishing, and achievable.

I was interviewed for one of New Zealand's main radio shows about what causes depression & the solutions. It was a good model of an interview where they rigorously put skeptical points and gave me the space to properly respond with nuanced arguments.

I tore through this book by in a weekend, like it was a thriller. A bold and compassionate take on the root causes of depression and anxiety.

I’ve always loved Jeremy Vine as a broadcaster. So chuffed to go on his show today, talking depression, starting at 1hr8mins here. The listeners’ comments -especially the 1st one - choked me up

Huge credit to the brave MPs taking a stand on this especially , and who are consistently brilliant on drug policy reform.

The refusal to permit medical cannabis is the worst kind of dogma. Shameful.

You are the best and bravest MP on drug policy, alongside Paul Flynn and Ronnie Cowan. You should be so proud of taking a stand on these issues Caroline. X

Hard to think of a more frustrating debate than the medicinal cannabis one. Many MPs support legalisation & the evidence is very clear. It's about relieving people's pain, improving lives. Yet a govt in hock to a right wing media stops progress on the issue. It's just wrong.

There are so many Muriel S novels to fall in love with. I am obsessed with the Driver’s Seat - a proper masterpiece I think

That should say , obvs. The main manifestation I get of jet-lag is the I basically can't type. And I walk into lamp-posts. And I inject coffee intravenously.
