I was convinced I still had to record this interview. I was even about to ask when it was going to happen. But then, all of a sudden it appeared on Twitter……..
I’ve listened to it amazed at the lovely conversation I had with the presenter, Piya. She was so kind.
It was also interesting to hear the sentences and words I used. People listening to it might think me eloquent and fully coherent, but I know I’ve said those sentences and words a thousand times. They appear to be stored, waiting to be released when the interviewer feeds me key swords, as Piya did so beautifully.
At one point I say, “The one person that never let’s me down is me”……I’m very lucky and have been for many years, that I’m happy in myself and it’s been a godsend with dementia.
The programme isn’t just about dementia, it’s about memory in general and how much we can rely on it. A fascinating programme.
Anyway, hopefully this link will work for you from CBC radio. Not sure how long its available. The programme was called Out in the Open. If you scroll under the first picture, it says, ‘Listen to the full episode’ and I’m on at the beginning. And Piya gives a lovely comment right at the end, bringing the listener up to date with the blog I wrote about the interview afterwards.
or you can just listen to my bit with this link…
