The uncertain line between sanity and madness [Audio]

This audio explores the faint, easily blurred border separating mental illness from sanity. Guests include psychologist Patricia Deegan and author David Sedaris.

Dr. Deegan talks about voice-hearing, including her own. Sedaris describes his childhood, dealing with OCD and Tourette’s Syndrome. Susanna Kaysen reads from her book Girl, Interrupted, and Joel Lovell tells listeners about his time working the night shift at a psychiatric hospital.
