On the next Fresh Air, Terry talks with Oliver Sacks, the famed neurologist and writer who died in 2015. He’ll talk about his work in asylums with victims of sleeping sickness. It was the subject of his first book, Awakenings. And he’ll talk about hallucinations and their causes including grief, medications and neurological disorders. A new documentary about Oliver Sacks will start streaming next week. Join us.
Fresh Air can be heard weekdays at 4:00 pm on KRCB-FM (and again at 12:00 am Tuesday through Friday)! / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the FREE KRCB Mobile App which you can download for your favorite mobile device.
