In this week’s Graphic Medicine Podcast, Carol Tyler’s keynote address from the Graphic Medicine 2015 conference in Riverside, California. The talk is titled “Bringing It All Back Home.”
With this being the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S., I thought it would be a great tie-in to post Carol’s talk in conjunction with StoryCorp’s Great Thanksgiving Listen.
Carol Tyler’s monumental book, “Soldier’s Heart: The Campaign to Understand My WWII Veteran Father” was released this week. The process which led to the creation of this book was a monumental act of intense listening, intense caregiving, and intense cartooning. She details it in this keynote address. The takeaway? “There’s always going to be a wreck of some sort, you’ve got to do your work. Draw No Matter What.”
Watch your screens, there are over 160 slides that go with Carol’s talk.
Next week on the podcast, an interview with Peter Dunlap-Shohl, creator of “My Degeneration: A Journey Through Parkinson’s” new from Penn State University Press.
