Guest: Steven Greenberg, MD, PhD, Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School Stroke is often thought of as a single event – a big thing that happens to someone’s brain and has lasting effects. But there’s a slower, more progressive form of stroke that entails tiny vessels in the brain leaking blood over time. Researchers now believe this kind of stroke is closely tied to rising rates of dementia in America.

(Originally aired on Nov. 10, 2017) Guest: Jenny Hale Pulsipher, PhD, Associate Professor, History, Brigham Young University, Author, “Swindler Sachem: The American Indian Who Sold His Birthright, Dropped Out of Harvard, and Conned the King of England” out in June 2018 from Yale University Press The story of a fascinating American Indian starts about a decade after English settlers and the Wampanoag Indians gathered for a harvest festival we now consider the first Thanksgiving. John Wompas was born around 1637 near what today is Grafton, Massachusetts. He was a Nipmuc Indian, but he didn’t come from any royal lineage in the tribe. His father was not a chief – or “sachem,” as the tribe’s leaders were called. And yet, John Wompas would become prominent in both Nipmuc and English communities. He would study at Harvard. Become the first Indian involved in the transatlantic sea trade
