Jose Riera is a survivor of electric shock therapy. Before coming to Washington State University, he had the corporate office and all of life’s conveniences. But it all unraveled. He spoke with Davi Kallman, a fellow doctoral student, about being an advocate for those with traumatic brain injuries for StoryCorps Northwest, recorded virtually.
