The Mind-Body Connection...at the Movies: ST Medical Monday Explores "All the Rage: Saved by Sarno"

Aired on Monday, October 16th.

On this edition of ST Medical Monday, we learn about the remarkable life and work of Dr. John Sarno, who died earlier this year at 93. As was noted in his New York Times obituary, Dr. Sarno was "a doctor at New York University whose controversial books on the psychological origins of chronic pain sold over a million copies, even while he was largely ignored or maligned by many of his medical peers.... Revered by some as a saint and dismissed by others as a quack, Dr. Sarno maintained that most non-traumatic instances of chronic pain -- including back pain, gastrointestinal disorders, headaches, and fibromyalgia -- are physical manifestations of deep-seated psychological anxieties." Now comes a documentary film about this fascinating individual: "All the Rage: Saved by Sarno" will be screened on October 26th at the Circle Cirle here in Tulsa. (You can see a trailer for this film https://vimeo.com/198419703">here, and you can obtain tickets for the upcoming Circle screening at this link.) Our guest is one of the directors of "All the Rage," Michael Galinsky.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
