The Forgetting

  • Hosted by David Shenk and Greg O'Brien

The Forgetting: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer’s is WCAI’s podcast entirely focused on 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.

The podcast is produced by WCAI News Director Sean Corcoran.
