Publisher's Summary

Sheri Fink holds an MD and PhD in neuroscience, and she has reported on health, medicine and science from every continent except Antarctica. Five Days at Memorial is her new book chronicling the events at Memorial Medical Center in New Orleans during hurricane Katrina in August of 2005. The hospital was situated three feet below sea level — one of New Orleans’s lowest points – and when the storm hit; at least two thousand people were at Memorial. Two hundred and forty of those were patients, six hundred were workers and the rest were taking refuge. The scene quickly became chaotic and Fink reports that several doctors and nurses were faced with making an unthinkable decision: deliberately injecting some ill patients with drugs to hasten their deaths, resulting in at least 18 fatalities.

Then, Bob talks once again with Paul Schomer who runs the new music discovery blog www.radiocrowdfund.com. This time he shares the music of two new acts – The Seattle band Dark Horses and Austin-based orchestral pop band Mother Falcon. [Broadcast Date: October 23, 2013]
