On this edition of Conversations from Studio B, host Ron Luce talks with George Eberts of the Athens Mental Health Center.

Some listeners may know the Athens Mental Health Center by an older title, the Athens Lunatic Asylum.

Eberts began working at the Athens Mental Health Center in 1978 and witnessed many changes to the center over the course of his tenure.

He also became an expert on the history of the Athens Lunatic Asylum through antiquity, which Luce and Eberts discuss.
