If Our Bodies Could Talk:
A Conversation with James Hamblin & Matt Thompson

January 11, 2017
Washington, DC

Hosted in Partnership With

Sixth & I

The Atlantic continued our interview series with Sixth & I, bringing the stories and personalities of The Atlantic to life. We sat down with Atlantic senior editor James Hamblin, host of the video series “If Our Bodies Could Talk,” to discuss his new book, If Our Bodies Could Talk: A Guide to Operating and Maintaining a Human Body, a handbook for tackling life’s most pressing health concerns and curiosities.

With TheAtlantic.com’s deputy editor Matt Thompson, Hamblin answered his readers’ many questions – How much sleep do I need? Are we meant to eat meat?– and more. His responses examined not just how our bodies work, but also why these processes matter socially and why we think about them in particular ways.
