Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love 1: No Direction Home
Kurt Cobain is a celebrated and defiant icon of Generation X. His wife, Courtney Love was once the most hated woman in America. Courtney like Kurt, was unapologetic, fierce, determined, ambitious, authentic and a total hypocrite. They were both totally in love and for a minute shined brighter than most. They challenged gender norms and the music industry patriarchy and reluctantly played the roles of their generationâ€™s John and Yoko by way of Sid and Nancy all while making great music, but only one of them would make it out of the nineties alive.

Famous musicians Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, and Amy Winehouse all died at 27 years old. Some call this phenomenon "a media construct".

But, recent studies on the brain help put this data into context. What really happened?Guests: Charles R. Cross (New York Times Best-Selling author of "Heavier Than Heaven"), and Dr. Roger McIntyre (Professor of Psychiatry and Pharmacology at the University of Toronto, Head of the Mood Disorders Psychopharmacology Unit at the University Health Network)
