Today we share with you an episode from one of our favorite radioshows: Radiolab. Memory and Forgetting first aired in June 2007, nearly 5 years ago. This podcast might be half a decade old, but the concepts and stories they discuss are just as relevant and interesting today as they were then, and, as always, Jad and Robert presents memory and forgetting in a delightful mosaic in 3 parts.
Remembering is an unstable and profoundly unreliable process–it’s easy come, easy go as we learn how true memories can be obliterated, and false ones added. And Oliver Sacks joins us to tell the story of an amnesiac whose love for his wife and music transcend his 7-second memory.
