4. The Heart


In this episode I talk to people about the heart. This is not an episode about love or intimate confidences – although there may be a little bit of that – this is about the physical, red, actually-kinda-ugly-looking organ in all of us: the heart.

First is the story of my sister Steph Woods who was born with a hole in her heart. Then I talk to a chemist about his favourite molecule of all time. The show ends on the story of Max Harris, a rising scholar whose future was put into jeopardy one hot summer’s day in New York City.

Max’s personal essay was originally published at The Pantograph Punch.
