Oliver Sacks meets Jon Stewart

Okay, Jonah saw this first — but in case you missed it there, here’s a snip from Jon Stewart interviewing Oliver Sacks about music and the brain.

This is a nice meeting. I’ve not met Stewart, but I had the pleasure to spend some time with Sacks while working on a couple stories, and he once gave me a book about Alexander Agassiz because he liked my book about Agassiz — and I’m happy to see him exert his usual charm and humor here in this Stewart segment.
