The Enemy Within


    How do we fight an enemy if that enemy is within us? On this week’s show, we look at what happens when your body turns against you. Millions of Americans live with a chronic illness, and sometimes, there’s no cure. Plus, people suffering from opioid addiction turn to the privacy of a remote island to quell their habit, a scientist tries to cure a sickness inside her home, and we meet a man who embraced his adversity and became quite the celebrity photo bomber.
