In today's episode, we are joined by Dianne Post who is an activist, lawyer, and curator of the Action Alerts that are responsible for circulating legislative information to constituents and voters throughout Arizona. We begin the show by trying to explore police interactions when the officers approach a suspect with the firm assumption that they are guilty versus the assumption that they may possibly be innocent. We then explore some of the bills that are being voted on in the House and Senate. Finally, we discuss some of the things that regular everyday folks can do to take back the power from elected officials or to otherwise hold them accountable for their votes, actions, or inaction.
If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
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.
