Andrew Franke, CEO of Medina Agriculture Products talks about how the family company has provided the highest quality, biologically based soil conditioners and natural/organic fertilizers since 1962. He says the idea for Medina started when Arthur Franke met James Martin at the Frontier Cafe in Hondo, Texas and they planned to make some of Mr. Martin’s catalyst that stimulates microbes to use on Mr. Franke’s farmland. His farmland had become so compacted that his Farmall H tractor could no longer plow his fields. After the harvest, and Arthur’s yields were larger and his soil was soft under his feet, the Medina Company was incorporated. This catalyst, or Medina Soil Activator, would later expand into a whole line of organic products for farming and gardening.

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.
