Have you ever noticed that many of the people most famous in history for having been extraordinary artists, musicians, writers, scientists, leaders, inventors were also uniquely different? Have you wondered why so many struggled with mental illness, dyslexia or some other unusual deficit? A significant percentage of today’s extraordinary individuals are quietly also todays sufferers. There is a connection between talent, ability, creativity and minds that are wired differently and that is what we will explore on “The Power of different” podcast. I’ll be bringing you their stories as well as experts in brain sciences who will help shed light on this phenomenon. Email us with your questions and show suggestions at thepowerofdifferent@gmail.com. And at the end of each show I’ll be answering the question “Is This Normal?”
