What does it feel like to be bipolar? How does mental illness affect family and relationships? What misunderstandings does the general public have about people who are bipolar? Katy Sewall speaks with Janine Crowley Haynes, author of the memoir “My Kind of Crazy: Living in a Bipolar World.”

Also this hour: mutant marine pollutants are moving through Puget Sound's food chain. We talk with former Seattle Times reporter Christopher Solomon about what scientists are discovering about ocean mammals dying from pathogens in our waste. Plus, we listen back to some of the music of radio's Golden Age, and Sara Dickerman joins us with a lunch recommendation.
