This is vintage Kay Redfield Jamison, of "An Unquiet Mind" fame, reflecting on her life with manic depressive illness.(Jamison, for those who do not know, is a professor of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University and also the author of the aforementioned memoir about her mental illlness) I found the lecture beautifully done and very accurate. I hope everyone has a chance to listen. It is about 3o minutes long.
