Brain Stories is a podcast series that delivers a ground-breaking look inside the world of our most feared and mysterious illnesses – those that generate psychotic behavior – in the words of those living with them, and their closest supporters. Each episode dives into the inner terrain of the mindscape, and the outer world’s response – almost always freighted with misunderstanding, discrimination and a nightmarish system that would drive a person, well … crazy. Episodes will escort you through these largely uncharted topographies in their wild chaos and impeccable logic. They’ll unpack both the pain and the triumphs, deliver a new understanding of the human brain, and an entirely new universe of normal. Welcome to the audio-literature of the human brain. Deeply personal tales of the heart-rending and mind bending.
