Clemency Burton-Hill on surviving a brain injury and how it changed her relationship to music.
Play • 38 min

On this week's episode, Angela speaks with musician, author, and broadcaster Clemency Burton-HIll. Clemency wants to make classical music more accessible, and has brought this mission to her work at New York Public Radio, WNYC, and the BBC.

Angie and Clemency talk about her books Year of Wonder and the follow-up Another Year of Wonder, both of which introduce the listener to a new piece of classical music every day. They also talk about Clemency's recovery from a brain hemorrhage in 2020, which only deepened her relationship to music.

We'll be back in two weeks with Zarqa Nawaz. See you then!
