In 2011, Cavin Balaster fell two stories and landed in a 12-day coma with less than a 10% chance of recovery. A year later, after painstakingly regaining the ability to walk, talk, eat, breathe, swallow and think clearly, he began a blog documenting the details of his intense recovery called "Adventures in Brain Injury." Now, Cavin's bringing his blog and information, including interviews with practitioners and other survivors, to the podcast format.

One of my favorites

Love geeking out on podcasts any chance I get. I am a recently graduated chiropractor working to specialize in Functional Neurology. Love listening to your podcast but a more advanced one is something I would really be interested if there is enough of a following. Regardless I never end an episode not learning something new and I can’t thank you enough for that Gavin.

Favorite podcast!

Such enlightening podcasts! Hosts are great and their speakers are very knowledgeable in their respected fields. Great advice to those recovering from tbi as well as anyone interested in neuroscience.

Excellent & valuable resource

I stumbled upon this podcast a few weeks ago and I’ve been hooked on it! Cavin’s personal account of his experience with brain injury is phenomenal and definitely inspiring. As a TBI survivor of 11 years myself, this podcast has helped me in gaining a better self-awareness and understanding of the types of resources available to me. As a newly graduated PTA who desires to have a career focused around neuro-rehab, this podcast is an invaluable resource for understanding the whole patient process from the clinician’s view point. Thank you to all involved in providing this outstanding and informative collection of interviews.
