It me, Olga Khazan

This newsletter is about mental health, wellness, psychology (e.g. the kind discussed in my book, WEIRD), and updates about my work and articles. One time I tweeted that I wanted to start “a newsletter for people with childhood trauma who have to pretend like they don't have childhood trauma for their job.” This is kind of that! Plus some other stuff.

Who am I?

I’ve been writing about health and other topics for The Atlantic since 2013. Before that, I worked at the Washington Post. I’m also a Russian who grew up in Texas, which was as wacky as it sounds.
