Thanks for this AMA! I have 2 questions:

1) Is there anything that you learned in your research that really surprised you?

2) I’m always a little skeptical of efforts to place the responsibility for action on the consumer rather than the industry. Of course our choices matter, but at the end of the day, even if I recycle every piece of plastic that comes into my house, that’s still nothing compared to big box stores that are throwing away tons of plastic every day with no consequences - there needs to be pressure on both sides. Has any of your research been about changes that should be made on an industry scale? For example, “if 50,000 people went vegan, it would have this effect, but if just one cattle ranch {insert fact here}, that would have the same net effect.” Any facts along those lines that you can share with us so that we can then share them with our elected officials?

What kind of questions can I ask a potential therapist to determine whether they’re a good fit or not?

And sort of an extension of that, I’ve been wanting to start therapy for a few months but one of the things that’s holding me back is that I feel a lot of pressure to make the right choice when picking a therapist. I don’t want to pick someone who is unethical, or doesn’t really care, or is a quack, but I don’t know how I could possibly assess that.
