Magic Words | This American Life

I’ve been catching up on my podcasts recently and listened to this episode of This American Life last week, Magic Words. The episode features a few stories about the power of words. The second chapter was particularly moving. It’s about how to connect with and care for people living with Alzheimer’s using improv.

Alzheimer’s is obviously devastating to everyone involved, it robs patients and caregivers of the ability to recall shared experiences and memories. It’s frustrating and sad. Suddenly you only have the here and now to connect on, which is where improv becomes useful. Improv asks people to accept the story (say yes!) and contribute to the story. The results are useful and moving, and yes, sometimes funny.

I thought of this podcast on Friday when I went to an improv show. I discussed improv/alzheimer’s with some friends afterwards. We all agreed that it’s a unique way to use improv outside of a comedy setting. Hopefully you’ll agree.

It's Not the Product, It's the Person | This American Life

Mike Birbiglia is featured on this week’s episode of This American Life, where the theme was It’s Not the Product, It’s the Person. Birbig’s tells a story about trying to make it in stand-up comedy. The clip was recorded (I think!) at a show at BAM this past Friday, which I was at. Keepin’ it fresh. 

Birbig’s is on a 50 city tour now. Learn more here: birbigs.com/tourdates

Joan Rivers was a pioneering comedian whose distinctive voice entertained multiple generations over the course of an astounding five decades of unparalleled brilliance. A trailblazer who exhibited remarkable courage of conviction as a woman in a male-dominated field, Joan never backed down or slowed down. Her extraordinary success paved the path for countless comedians that followed and can be seen and felt to this day. Our thoughts are with her family and friends during this time of loss.

Couldn’t have said it better myself. Rest in peace, Joan Rivers.
