The Forgetting: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer's

About This Show

Show Info:

The Forgetting is a podcast that talks about and demystifies Alzheimer's disease. The twice-monthly show is co-hosted by two well-respected Alzheimer’s experts: David Shenk author of, “The Forgetting: Alzheimer’s, Portrait of an Epidemic;” and Greg O’Brien, author of, “On Pluto: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer’s.” O’Brien was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease in 2009, at age 59. The podcast highlights the friendship Shenk and O’Brien share, while also documenting O’Brien’s experience with the disease as its symptoms become more pronounced. The earliest conversations date from 2015. Subsequent episodes of the podcast follow O'Brien's journey with the disease to the present day. The podcast is produced at WCAI in Woods Hole.
