Hidden Brain: Eyes Wide Open

Just wanted to share two recent episodes of Hidden Brain, an NPR podcast hosted by Shankar Vendantam.

Two episodes from early November 2017 are wonderful overviews about sleep and insomnia including an interview with the infamous Randy Gardner, the record-holder for going without sleep. Though unaffected at the time, Gardner now suffers from severe insomnia.

For students and teachers wishing to learn more about the biology and purpose of sleep, these two episodes are excellent
