In this episode of the iCantCU Podcast, I talk about shopping for a new home security system that will be accessible to me, since most now use touchpads that are not tactile. I also talk about the new White Canes Connect show that I produce and co-host with Lisa Bryant. Show notes at https://www.iCantCU.com/132

In this episode of the iCantCU Podcast, I talk about picking up our new Nissan Murano and being left out of the process on how to operate the various controls. While I don't need to know the functions involved with driving the vehicle, it would've been nice to know the particulars about the radio and climate control. It should also come as no surprise that once my iPhone was paired with the entertainment system, VoiceOver d...

In this episode of the iCantCU Podcast, I talk about going to my primary care physician even though I wasn't sick or feeling bad. I had to go simply because it was over a year since I had been there and if I needed referrals, the doctor would need to see me. What could possibly go wrong going to a hospital during a pandemic?

  • 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.
