Those stricken with Aphasia have difficulty processing language. Charlotte actor Carl McIntyre, experienced aphasia as the result of a massive stroke. The story of his recovery is inspiring. We spoke to Carl about his experience and about a film documenting it back in 2010. That film has won multiple awards and is about to be released on DVD with extras that include interviews with Gabby Gifford's therapist. We revisit that conversation. (Originally Aired: 5/6/2010)
