The Story Collider podcast has become a deeply integrated into my psyche, and my life. I stumbled upon the series via Radiolab. On my commute today, I listened to Sara Peters and Peter Aguero's story about Sara's epilepsy. This was very well done: by the end I felt connected to them.
So, I highly recommend you spend a few minutes of your life watching the video below (the podcast was recorded at TedMed 2013, so, thus, you get video). Your life will be the better for it.
(It wouldn't be a bad idea to subscribe to Story Collider, too. Just sayin'.)
