Our show this time was record in front of a remarkably appreciative audience at The Examined Life Conference, and it was a lot of fun. We talked with several presenters from the conference, including Gabriel Ledger an emergency physician who became a filmmaker when he decided he wanted to find out more about the patients he’d encountered in the ER. We spoke with Emily White, an Iowa undergrad who has been doing research on Dignity Therapy and who no doubt has a bright future in medicine. Toni Becker is a speech language pathology grad student whose portraiture and interviews of people with disabilities remind us of their significance. Susan Ball is associate director of the New York Presbyterian’s AIDS care center, and shared with us her experiences as a physician at the start of the AIDS epidemic.
