Memory

People often believe their memory is a perfect record of the events they have experienced. The reality is that human memory is not as good as we think and can sometimes lead to unusual consequences. How much can any of us really trust our memories? It turns out that when it comes to remembering any event, no matter how mundane or how monumental, our ability to recall the past is distorted. In this episode, we'll investigate the story of Lizzie Borden, an ax murderer, an alien abduction and the traumatic events of 9/11 to reveal the secrets of human memory. By end of the show, see how much better you will be at remembering the past.
