In this episode, James Gummer and I talk about how OCD impacts our romantic relationships among other things. It's hard when the grocery store doesn't have that specific brand of vegan sausage that you want and you have to stand there for 45 minutes trying to figure out what to do! James Gummer has no idea what’s going on and is learning to be okay with that. He lives in Baltimore, Maryland where he works as a drummer and teaches Tai Chi, qigong, and meditation. He’s been fascinated with eastern philosophy since childhood and is really interested in integrating timeless wisdom with modern science. As a writer, James has written on topics such as OCD, anxiety, breakups, and how not to be a jerk face. He loves Star Wars, dogs, not having to do stuff, and is a huge fan of naps.
