The newest episode of The Memory Palace is out, and it’s a great way to start baseball season!
I actually didn’t provide research assistance for this episode. I’ve been doing archival work in anticipation of Radiotopia Live, which you can still get tickets for here. While I did not contribute to its creation, I feel a strong personal and intellectual connection to this episode’s subject matter. Yes, it’s a baseball story, but it’s also a story about our culture’s uncomfortable relationship with the concept of neurodiversity. If that pairing isn’t enough to pique youre interest, you might need to call your doctor.
I hope you enjoy listening to Episode 87: Victory half as much as I did!
