Novelist John Green On OCD

Green is the author of popular young adult novels including 'The Fault in Our Stars,' which was adapted into a film, and 'Turtles All the Way Down,' about a teenage girl with OCD — which John also has. He says it "starts out with one little thought, and then slowly that becomes the only thought that you're able to have." Green and his brother Hank have a popular video blog called Vlogbrothers; their followers call themselves "nerdfighters." The brothers go on tour this month. (Originally broadcast October 2017)

Also, film critic Justin Chang reviews 'The Children Act,' starring Emma Thompson and Stanley Tucci.
