Change Of Guard

    Listen

    Obama is out. Trump is in. What does it all mean? Some people can’t wait for the Affordable Care Act to go away, while others are stocking up on medication that their insurance is still paying for. Many scientists are afraid of the future of climate change research — will it be defunded? Others are excited about Trump’s positive stance on genetically modified foods. On this show, we break down the health and science issues that are on the cusp of really big changes. 

    We meet a doctor who put his life on the line researching insurance plans that could replace Obamacare, and a coal miner in Alabama who is looking forward to changes in energy policy that might bring back his way of life. Only one thing is certain — change.
