An American investigates Depression Exorcism

This story is audio only and is 16 minutes long. That’s a lot to listen to on the internet, but it’s pretty damn interesting. The speaker is author Andrew Solomon, who wrote The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression. The story he tells describes a trip he made to study folk treatments for depression in Senegal and how he ended up being the recipient of that ritual. And how it affected him.

It’s a pretty amazing story. Highly recommended.
