Continuing coverage of the bombings in Boston


Guests:  John Chovanes, Ron Fournier and Heather Hurlburt

As the details surrounding Monday’s bombings at the Boston Marathon unfold, we’ll continue our coverage. We’re joined in this hour of Radio Times by Cooper University Hospital trauma surgeon JOHN CHOVANES who served in the U.S. Army Medical Corps. He’ll talk to us about the challenges of caring for victims of bomb blasts as well as what we have learned from advances in battlefield medicine. Then we’ll talk about how the nation — its people and government — is responding and coping with this most recent attack on American soil with National Journal writer RON FOURNIER and HEATHER HURLBURT of the National Security Network.
