It’s a pleasure to talk with neuroscientists; their curiosity about the brain is endless, and I always learn something new. I recently had the opportunity to chat with Dr. Eva Higginbothom, the host of How We’re Wired, a podcast from Fresh Air Productions. How We’re Wired explores the brain via true, personal stories of people’s lives – and brains – from birth to death, taking a deep look at the science that explains us all.

Eva and I spoke about mirror-sensory synesthesia, and how this perceptual difference both enhances and complicates my life. You can listen to the episode When Our Senses Intermingle via this weblink, on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher.
