Quirks and Quarks

Saturday at noon:

Daniel Tammet's new book, Embracing the Wide Sky.

Tammet is an autistic savant who sees numbers as vivid, living forms. In fact, he holds the world record for memorizing the calculation of Pi to more than 22,000 decimal places. And in his new book, he explains how understanding his remarkable mind helps us better understand human consciousness and creativity.

They have a podcast if you can't usually catch it...

UPDATE: something while surfing around.. Autism linked to vinyl floors.
