In 2014, Diane Rehm watched as her husband, John, decided to stop eating and drinking after his fight with Parkinson’s disease became unbearable. We visit the studios of WAMU in Washington to talk with her about the experience of watching her husband die – and about her plans after retirement. Her new book is called “On My Own” (Knopf). “The Diane Rehm Show” airs daily on KERA at 9 a.m. and 8 p.m.
This show originally aired on April 28, 2016.
