    A paramedic making house calls, a surgeon making faces more feminine, and women in Nashville writing songs of their assaults — on this week’s show, stories about working with what you’ve got, no matter what the situation. 

    Plus, some fun with helium, and the kind of morbid science behind why leaves look beautiful in the fall.
