Deeply Divided

This election season has put people at odds with one another. Deep divisions among Americans are amplified by the rapid-fire news cycle and social media. In this episode, we take a step away from the fighting and name-calling and see how some of the big issues in this election play out in the health and science world.

We promise we’ll be very even-keeled and nobody will be called an idiot.
