James Hamblin


Hamblin is a senior editor at The Atlantic. He writes the health column in the monthly magazine and also hosts a video series called If Our Bodies Could Talk. His work has been featured on or covered by NPR, BBC, MSNBC, New York, The New York Times, Politico magazine, Slate, The Awl, and even mentioned in passing on The Colbert Report. TIME named him among the 140 people to follow on Twitter in 2014, and BuzzFeed called him "the most delightful MD ever," though he is in no way as delightful as William Carlos Williams. After finishing medical school he did three years of medical residency, and improv at iO Chicago and UCB LA, before joining The Atlantic to develop a health section and, at least for now, work entirely in media. And, if you're still reading this, here's a recent profile in Capital New York.
