EP 164 - Dr. Gabor Mate
Welcome to the Pretty Intense Podcast. I'm your host, Danica Patrick. Today we have a very special guest. I have been following his work for years. His work within the realm of childhood trauma and parenting, disease, has always blown me away. His name is Dr. Gabor Maté. He has a new book called "The Myth Of Normal." This book took Dr. Maté over ten years to write. I think that society at this time needs a book like this. Because what is normal? Dr. Maté really challenges the institutions, the patterns, the mechanisms, that have brought us to the rough state in society now. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did.
A renowned speaker and bestselling author, Dr. Gabor Maté is highly sought after for his expertise on a range of topics including addiction, stress, and childhood development.
