Suzy Favor Hamilton on her life with bipolar disorder


in Canada, Language

A key part of what makes CBC’s The Current so worthwhile to listen to is the interviewing ability of Anna Maria Tremonti, who manages to be appropriately skeptical and demanding with public figures but who can also demonstrate remarkable insight and compassion when interviewing people with difficult stories to tell.

Her recent segment with bipolar ex-Olympian Suzy Favor Hamilton is an excellent example of what I mean: Olympian-turned-Vegas escort Suzy Favor Hamilton shares her story.

The segment also made me want to order Kay Redfield Jamison’s An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness.
