Show Notes

We’re getting life lessons from Paul Meister from beyond the grave about how to be aggressive without disaster. Sarah is having a rough start to her Mexico vacation, but we remain optimistic. Susie talks about a documentary called Bad Doctor about a surgeon who claimed to create a miracle prosthetic windpipe that he transplanted into patients, but it turned out to be a complete lie and ended up killing people. We discuss a memoir called Country of the Blind about a man who is becoming blind, and what he learned about vision, disabilities, and the way we all understand the world. Sarah talks about disabled people who ski including a special ski made for people who are paralyzed. Susie describes a Alabama mayor named Bubba who was outed for living a double life, and we debate whether the private lives of public figures should ever be exposed by journalists. Plus we hear why AI has a “hotness problem.”
