Mr. Rogers Audio Cassette for Terminally Ill Children

A recent episode of the Spoken Word with Electronics podcast shares Healing with Love, an audio cassette made in 1983 by child psychiatrist Gerald Jampolsky and TV host Fred Rogers. It’s a collection of recordings of group meetings where children and families who have experienced serious illness provide advice and support to other kids undergoing treatment. It’s so touching and inspiring.

This segment is the original audio:

The rest of the episode includes host Ethan Persoff discussing the tape, which he has owned for many years, as well as his interesting remix of the audio. You can listen to the whole thing here.

Found on BoingBoing.
