Mark Burman draws on his own interviews – including George Lucas, Mark Hamill and John Williams – gathered over the past 20 years, from many key people who have long since passed away.

In the late 1970s, the newly formed National Institute on Aging redefined senility as a disease – specifically, Alzheimer’s disease. They said that with enough support they could find a cure, but after 40 years and billions of dollars, there is still no treatment. In this hour, we hear from people who shaped early Alzheimer’s research, we explore promising dementia treatments that have received short shrift because it’s hard to make money on them, and we look at racial disparities in dementia and what they can tell us about why people develop cognitive problems as they age.
Student shows will start airing this week. On the faculty side, Music Alley (Tuesdays at 8 am) and Thursday Detention (Thursdays at 3:30 pm) are back in full swing, joining The Secret Stash (Wednesdays at 7 pm) which didn’t take a summer break.

This APM Reports documentary investigates where the idea comes from, why it holds on, and how it harms kids.

Moving a lot is hard on school kids. A growing body of research says children with unstable housing are more likely to struggle in school and more likely to drop out. And millions of children in the United States have unstable housing. This APM Reports documentary focuses on two groups of kids who often change addresses – homeless kids and children of migrant farm workers — and explores efforts to help these students do well in school.
