Transcript
Dr. Miles Nichols

Hello everyone and welcome to the microbes and mental health summit. I’m Dr. Miles, your host here today with Ross Douthat and Ross is a columnist for the New York times as well as having been a senior editor for the Atlantic and has authored several books, the most recent of which is the deep places, a memoir of illness and discovery about his personal journey through chronic Lyme disease and Ross. I really wanted to have on this summit because it’s really nice to understand a little bit about someone who’s struggled with chronic disease, who also has the perspective of a journalist and a very skeptical and grounded perspective on life and not the type of person that sometimes people associate with chronic Lyme disease. So welcome, Ross, thank you for being here today.
