Julie loves the glorious colors associated with the sound of a rooster crowing, while Mandi remembers phone numbers by their hues. Until John read a newspaper article about synesthesia in later life, he thought that everyone saw the days of the week as various shades of blue. In this program people with synesthesia describe their experiences and perceptions, and the benefits and drawbacks of having a condition in which the barriers between the senses are dissolved. While it might seem like a psychedelic drug trip to the 96 percent of the population who donâ€™t have synesthesia, those who do report that â€œYou donâ€™t go around saying, â€˜Oh, wow!â€™â€¦ itâ€™s just the way [they] perceive life.â€
