Episode 1: 99% Dishwasher Safe with Adam Keys

On July 14, 2010, Adam Keys was six months into his first tour in Afghanistan when his vehicle hit an improvised explosive device. He was the only one to survive the attack that killed four of his fellow service members. Since then, he's lost three limbs and has undergone 140+ surgeries on his road to recovery. But he chooses not to be defined by what he's lost. 


He chooses to be defined by what he's gained: an indomitable sense of purpose, a deep joy for living, and a killer sense of humor. 


In our inaugural episode of In Stitches, hosts PJ Walsh and Sam Pressler sit down with Adam to explore the ups and downs of his journey—and the role humor has played through it all. 


The psychologist Esther Perel says that there are two groups of people who experience trauma: those who don't die and those who come back to life. As you'll hear in this episode, Adam has certainly come back to life—and he's living with strength, humility, and jokes. 


Credits: Adam Keys (Featured Guest), David Bobrow (Executive Producer), PJ Walsh (Host, Producer), Sam Pressler (Host, Producer),  Josiah Day (Researcher), Grace Manno (Designer).
