David Sedaris’s favorite story teller Dylan Brody talks about performing in front of 3,000 people with David Sedaris. Then he recites the seven minute story he told that night. Our lady female woman doctor returns to tell the boys that their Attention Deficit Disorder is a figment of the pharmaceutical industry’s craven imagination. Also the Nation Magazine’s Moscow correspondent Alec Luhn fills us in on the protests in Ukraine. Michael Snyder talks movies. Plus new music from Will Ryan and The Cactus County Cowboys. This is the episode that almost didn’t happen. You can smell the tension in the air. But we did it. We almost had a fistfight break out, but everybody calmed down.

    Interesting show – you’re correct in your intro that it is a “national trust”. You manage to put so much interesting topics into this podcast, with the wonderful short story by Dylan Brody as the aural dessert. Although I can’t help but wonder what happened in the alternate version that almost led to fisticuffs … was it a Jimmy Dore visit?

    It seems quite obvious that the deleted part was another altercation with John Hotchkiss over Wall Mart; the doctor made reference to the “Wall Mart situation” en passant and John Hotchkiss was there, but we didn’t hear him, so I think it’s quite easy to connect the dots.
    All in all, it was a good show, and I would love to hear the doctor’s thoughts on overparenting.
    I always liked this soft-spoken doctor, but especially after hearing this show, I must stay she is an endangered species… I rarely (never!!!) came across a doctor who actually TALKED and LISTENED to me, I always felt like I’m on a conveyor belt. I think doctors acutely lack social and communication skills, that’s why the doctor-patient relationship is so broken; perhaps this is partially due to big pharma, as suggested on the show, but I’m quite convinced that it also makes many people susceptible to scams and con-artists, who are usually very good at exploiting the very weaknesses of traditional medicine, and if you are not medically educated, their arguments make sense. And I’m not only taking about the outright scams promising to cure cancer, AIDS, etc…, but you see many products, diets, supplements advertised as being antioxidants, or containing one or other vitamin that is good for you, and we almost blindly believe in them, because they seem to do you good, without considering that too much of a good thing could be a bad thing…You are mostly left to your own devices to figure out what’s good and bad, and you have to choose carefully your sources, because there is lots of disinformation. But I digress… would love to hear the doctor’s thoughts on (over)parenting and nutrition, etc.

      I’ve been thinking of getting somebody from the FTC on the show to discuss this.
