Today's guest is journalist and best-selling author, Robert Whitaker. Robert is the author of the books, "Mad in America" and "Anatomy of an Epidemic", both of which take a critical view of American Psychiatry and call into question our standard story about mental illnesses, their origins, and the medicines we use to treat them.

Robert speaks with Zach about the field of psychiatry, as told in his two most popular books, and explains how he reached his conclusions.
