Sandy Gibson, the co-founder of Better Place Forests, joins Nichole to talk about a new way to memorialize loved ones who pass: surviving family members picking out a special tree in the Berkshires of Massachusetts or the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut, and spreading ashes underneath it. Sandy has details on how families can take part, and the company's push to promote conservation efforts in New England forests. Cathryn Edelstein, a Senior Executive-in-Residence at Emerson College's Communication Studies Department, talks with Nichole about "On The Same Page", a campaign she runs with her students to provide diverse books to students in the Boston Public Schools. You can find their work on Facebook and Instagram @onthesamepageboston.

Dr. Death

Dr. Death

We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
