Strangers is the latest project from Peabody award-winning producer Lea Thau. It’s a podcast from KCRW and Radiotopia where people tell true stories from their lives. Here’s the latest episode: Go, Kalan.
Greg O’Brien has been a writer, journalist and thinker all his life. Now he is losing his mind due to early on-set Alzheimer’s, and he’s an astute observer of his own decline, speaking with precision an poetry about the darkness that is enveloping him. In one moment he accidentally puts his laptop in the microwave, in the next he writes beautiful sentences to describe his experience. He compares this clicking in and out to the flickering light of a loose plug in a socket. He’s in a race against time to share his story before the plug falls out for good, and he recently published a book about his struggle with Alzheimer’s called On Pluto: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer’s. His web site is www.onpluto.org.
