I’ve been a huge fan of Oliver Sacks for years ever since I first discovered the great radio program on NPR, Radiolab, on which, over the years, he has been a frequent contributor and guest.

What interested me in Dr. Sacks was his deep well of humanity, an overflowing reservoir of empathy for the dispossessed and uniquely afflicted. He’s a champion for the unusual, an unusual that is common to us all, in a way.
