Episode Description

Kathryn interviews neuroscientist Dr. Frances E. Jensen, author of the book “The Teenage Brain: A Neuroscientist’s Survival Guide to Raising Adolescents and Young Adults”. Dr. Jensen discusses how aspects of the teenage brain – from learning and memory to gender differences – are changed once a person experiences a head trauma. Dr. Jensen is Chair of the Department of Neurology at the University of Pennsylvania and was Director of Translational Neuroscience at Harvard Medical School. Kathryn also interviews breast cancer survivor Stephanie Hosford about her book “Bald, Fat & Crazy: How I Beat Cancer While Pregnant with One Daughter and Adopting Another”. Having a baby is a monumental experience, and so is adopting a child; being diagnosed with cancer comes with its own emotional and physical entanglements. Now, imagine what it would be like to experience all three at once. “Bald, Fat & Crazy” is Hosford’s heartfelt and humorous memoir chronicling her unique circumstances.
