A Cure for Boredom is Curiosity… There Is No Cure for Curiosity

Welcome to the 28th year of Radio Curious, now broadcast on approximately 55 radio stations in addition to this permanent collection.

Here you will find over 700 half hour interviews on a curiously wide array of topics concerning life and ideas.  These programs are a gift to you from Radio Curious host and producer Barry Vogel.  He started Radio Curious in 1991, to expand the work he began in 1974 as an Attorney, Counselor and Mediator in Ukiah, California, the Mendocino County seat, located about 110 miles north of San Francisco, California.

In this edition of Radio Curious we continue our conversation with forensic psychiatrist Dr. Terry Allen Kupers, about solitary confinement. We discuss ways to end it with the goal of prison inmates successfully returning to society.  Dr. Kupers, is the author of “Solitary: The Inside Story of Supermax Isolation and How We can Abolish It.”

All programs are free for anyone to enjoy, download, copy, share or rebroadcast as you wish.  Please credit Radio Curious and let us know what you like about the program.
