Today we're going to depart from our regular format a little bit, and explore the area where fiction meets real life.
We hear passages from the novel Machine Man by Max Barry, about a man who slowly transforms himself, body part by body part, into a machine. And then we'll meet a real life amputee, an MIT professor named Hugh Herr, who is building mechanical body parts for real.
The book passages were performed by Ed Herbstman and Chet Siegel
The piece was produced by Jonathan Mitchell and edited by David Krasow.
It originally aired on Studio 360
