Between Two
Brains Podcast

The podcast by survivors, about survivors, for survivors

Join our host Chloe as she takes a candid, fearless dive into brain injury and the world of invisible disability.

Brain injury is the #1 killer and disabler of people under 40.  A brain injury can change everything in an instant.  Largely invisible, isolated, and stigmatized, this community is also where the most incredible comeback stories of resilience, recovery, and reinvention live. Between Two Brains sheds light on this community’s silent determination to survive with compassion (and a little irreverence).  Our hosts & guests live it every day. They get it – they get you – and they get real about life with a brain injury.  Let’s talk about life beyond brain injury, celebrate neurodiversity, and make the invisible visible together.

  • 006: Mariah Morgan
    On the morning of November 13, 2018, I looked both ways before crossing the street as I entered a pedestrian crosswalk on my two-block walk to work. My memory gets dodgy from here but my brain still holds a few snippets: a quarter of the way across the street I watched the fender of an SUV hit my knee, I slammed onto its hood, and then my head quickly hit the pavement. Hard. I was rushed to the hospital, put in a medically-induced coma, and, when I came to in the ICU at Portsmouth Regional Hospital, was told my 34-year-old body was not how I last remembered it. I’ll spare you the details of the insane list of diagnoses I was given - some knee, neck, and brain-related - but the most important one to know about is that I had an acute subdural hematoma. […]
