The Soul Patch

Hosted by ,  • 

In this episode, stories of unlikely (and surprisingly simple) answers to seemingly unsolvable problems. We get to know a man who struggles, and mostly fails, to contain his violent outbursts...until he meets a bird who can keep him in check. Then, Oliver Sacks and Chuck Close, who are both face-blind, share workarounds that help them figure out who they're talking to. And a senior center stumbles upon an unexpected way to help Alzheimer's patients - by building a bus stop.
