My apologies for uploading an incomplete version of this episode, and worst of all not detecting the problem for almost a week.
Episode 54 of Books and Ideas is an interview with Dr. Michaels Saags from the UAB Center for AIDS Research and author of "Positive: One Doctor's Personal Encounters with Death, Life, and the US Healthcare System." Dr. Saag became involved in the fight against HIV-AIDS early in his career and his work has been vital in transforming HIV from a death sentence to a manageable medical condition, but like many American physicians he is "angry" about the current state of "healthcare" in the US. We consider both topics in this interview.
