The Impact of a Sick Spouse - Airs Jan 21st

Outside the Dying by Conrad Bishop and Elizabeth Fuller
This is the dramatized journal of research biologist Julie Conaron. After a sharp decline in his health, Julie's husband was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Not knowing what else to do, she decided to keep a diary of her difficult, heartbreaking experience -- from the impact of the news, to becoming the care-giver, and eventual survivor of the man she loved. Winner of the Silver Reel Award for Radio Drama from the National Federation of Community Broadcasters.

Distance from The Memory Palace
The incredible and sad story of how the death of his wife inspired the accomplished and famed painter S.F.B. Morse to change our world. Over the next 45 years he would perfect and invent the electromagnetic telegraph and accelerate the speed at which humans communicate forever.
