StoryCorps is a radio program that travels the country, allowing two people to sit down and interview each other. A few weeks ago, Storycorps visited Las Vegas to interview people at memory loss facilities. They sat down with people with Alzheimer's or dementia and their family members and asked them to share their stories. We'll be playing some of those interviews over the next two weeks. And we'll also have a special show on Tuesday where we talk about memory loss and how it affects people and their loved ones. Do you know someone with Alzheimer's or dementia? How has it changed their lives? How has it changed yours?
When close friends interview each other, the stories are often more intimate and revealing than talking to a reporter. Case in point: Alan Morel and Mike Genoshe talking about their hopes for their adopted son.
