Podcast 16 – Music and Relaying TBI Experiences with Tim Page
I announce that Michelle Malmberg (my guest on the last podcast) is our new co-host on the Adventures in Brain Injury Podcast! And, for our first episode together, we take the opportunity to interview Tim Page, a professor in both the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism and the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California.
Tim suffered a subdural hematoma with herniation and, among other forms of healing, found healing through music as medication.
In this episode we talk about:
- Music as medication
- Different kinds of fatigue
- Types of Memory
- The power of writing and journaling
- Finding upsides of new circumstances
- Saying “no” to some things
- Paying our fortune forward
- Reaching out for understanding
- Near death experiences and coming back
- The memory of the body
It was an absolute honor to chat with Tim after such an unbelievable article that he wrote for Ampersand titled “Tim Page: Letter From the Other Side — Return from a Traumatic Brain Injury,” and we are excited to hear more from him in the future!
