This is a piece inspired by a Radiolab podcast about Memory (and forgetting). The main idea presented in the episode is that our memories don't exist in our heads in some kind of memory bank, they're actually created (and altered) on the spot every time we "remember" them. Because we base our sense of selves on these stories we're actually creating our identities as we go. Crazy! Listen here.
