The Brain + Math + Natasha Tells All!

           

Norman Doidge, M.D., is a psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, researcher, author, essayist, and poet, he joins Life Elsewhere to discuss his latest book The Brain’s Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries from the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity. They thought that the brain was too sophisticated for its own good. That during evolution, it became so complex that it lost the ability to repair itself and to restore lost functions or to preserve itself. They were wrong. Because it turns out that its very sophistication can be the source of a unique kind of healing… The brain’s way of healing.” Says Doidge. The subject of his book could be daunting if it were not for Norman Doidge’s enthusiasm and easy to understand explanations

“I believe you have Dyscalculia”, mathematics Professor, Jordan Ellenberg tells Norman B, who admits to having difficulty with numbers and being daunted by interviewing the author of How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking. The professor’s book, now out in paperback is all about math, but not the math we learn in school which can seem like a dull set of rules, laid down by the ancients and not to be questioned. Instead, Jordan Ellenberg explains to us how terribly limiting this view is. “Math isn’t confined to abstract incidents that never occur in real life, but rather touches everything we do—the whole world is shot through with it, the math.” the professor says.

She was the last person to be hired at Andy Warhol’s Factory and she wants to talk about it. Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni wants to talk about all of her experiences including an affair with Mick Jagger when she was a seventeen-year-old school girl. Ms. Fraser-Cavassoni isn’t one to hold back, in her new book, After Andy – Adventures In Warhol Land, she tells all. It’s a glitzy, fast-paced, juicy, gossipy, name-dropping chronicle. She saw firsthand the end of an era and the establishment of a global phenomenon. From behind the scenes disagreements and the assessment of his estate, which included Interview magazine and his art inventory, to the record-breaking auction of his belongings and the publication of his diaries. Natasha examines the immediate aftermath of Warhol’s death and his ever-growing impact. In the next edition of Life ElsewhereNatasha Fraser-Cavassoni chats with Norman B about her riveting eyewitness memoir.

Conversations, Concerns & New Music

During Norman B’s recent month-long visit to his home country, England, he was asked by almost everyone he met, “What happened in the last Presidential election?” People across the Atlantic are genuinely mystified, confused and paying careful attention to what happens next. With that thought in mind, we called upon a favorite contributor to Life Elsewhere, writer and book critic, David Ulin. With unbridled zeal, David offers his take on life after Trump. He controversially suggests the outcome of the last Presidential election is like this generation’s 9/11. “Nothing will ever be the same again!” He says.

While traveling around England, Norman B took the opportunity to interview face-to-face, guests who have appeared on the show. Up and coming singer-songwriter, Leaone met with Norman on an unusually hot summer day at a venerable London pub. They sat in the picturesque shaded garden of The Albion, in Islington. As they chat, you’ll hear all the ambient sounds and get a glimpse into the inner workings of a new aspiring talent.

Plus, Norman gives his review of a new double-sided single from Mick Jagger. Is it possible that the aging rockstar has made an important and serious commentary about what’s going on in the world? In his two new songs, Jagger touches on Brexit and the state of the world. To set the stage for Jagger’s new work, you’ll hear a very young Mick Jagger from 1966 talk about the social and cultural issues of that era. Perhaps we need to pay more attention to the 74-year-old rocker because he made saying more than artists half his age!

And, as a bonus, Norman introduces new music he believes you need to hear. From Nashville, The New Respects with Come As You Are, from their debut EP, Here Comes Trouble. The four-piece are a family affair, made up of three siblings, twins Alexis (bass) and Zandy Fitzgerald (guitar), along with their brother Darius (drums), and cousin Jasmine Mullen (vocals/guitar).
