Tracy Doris Morgan

Tracy D. Morgan is the founding Editor and Host of NBiP, which was awarded the NAAP Gradiva Award for New Media in 2013. A psychoanalyst in private practice for over 20 years in both NYC and now Rome, Italy, she is also a graduate of The Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies where she serves on the faculty. Many years ago, while becoming an academic historian, with an interest in the history of sexuality, medicine, culture and race, she decided that history with a small “h” was more her speed and began to see patients. While steeped in and admiring of clinical modes that are decidedly Modern Psychoanalytic, (she has been fortunate to have been mentored, analyzed and supervised by adherents of Spotnitz, including Ormont, Meadow and Geltner themselves) she is equally interested in experiencing and exploring the larger world of psychoanalytic thinking. As such you will find her talking with members of all schools. She remains devoted to bringing a wide variety of psychoanalytic ideas into the ether where she thinks they very much so belong. Finally, she is delighted to have witnessed many hosts join the podcast and she is proud to be part of this ecumenical crew—which in psychoanalysis is no small feat. You can reach her at
