Upcoming Podcasts: September 25th and 26th

On September 25, I'll interview Eric Weinberg, co-author with Donna Shaw, of, Blood on Their Hands: How Greedy Companies, Inept Bureaucracy and Bad Science Killed Thousands of Hemophiliacs.   The authors write, "most people with severe hemophilia who regularly infused commercial clotting drugs between 1980 and 1985 contracted the AIDS virus."  How this happened and the resulting legal battle to hold the pharmaceutical industry accountable is the subject of their work.  

On September 26, I'll interview Dr. Haider Warriach concerning his recent work, Modern Death, How Medicine Changed End of Life.  Among other topics he addresses in his work is euthanasia or physician assisted suicide (now legal in five states and DC) and terminal sedation.
