Healing the Harm in American Health Care (Originally aired September 24, 2019) Guest: Joseph Q. Jarvis, Author, “The Purple World: Healing the Harm in American Health Care” How to improve America’s expensive healthcare system is a crucial issue for the 24 Democrats hoping to become president. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren lead the contingency hoping to abolish private insurance and have everyone covered by a national system like Medicare. Kamala Harris wants a version of Medicare-for-all, but with a role for private insurance companies to play. Joe Biden wants to build on Obamacare by adding a “public option.” If your eyes glaze over at the details of this debate, you’re not alone. A Call for Girls to Be Brave, Not Perfect (Originally aired April 2, 2019) Guest: Reshma Saujani, Founder and CEO of Girls Who Code; author of “Brave, Not Perfect,” “Girls Who Code,” and “Women Who Don’t Wait in Line” A record number of women are taking the biggest political risk possible and running for president. That’s just the kind of thing girls need to see more of, says Reshma Saujani. In her book, “Brave, Not Perfect,” Saujani argues that women are so programmed by society to avoid failure, they avoid taking chances that would lead to great things. How to Not Let Stereotypes Undermine Your Performance (Originally aired March 6, 2019) Guest: Russell McClain, Associate Professor and Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion, University of Maryland, Carey School of Law Given what we’ve seen on social media in the last week, it’s not a big surprise to me that more than half of Americans think race relations are bad-and getting worse. That same recent Pew survey shows most Americans believe being Black, Hispanic hurts a person’s ability to get ahead in society today. Stereotypes play an important role in that. They affect how people are treated, yes. But they can also become sort of self-fulfilling prophecies where people behave as the stereotype expects them to. The Hunt for the USS Wasp (Originally aired April 3, 2019) Guest: Rear Admiral Samuel J. Cox, U.S. Navy (Retired) and Director of the Naval History and Heritage Command and Curator of the Navy A wooden sailing vessel from the days when Christopher Columbus was discovering the New World was discovered at the bottom of the icy Baltic Sea. A company looking to lay a natural gas pipeline on the seafloor stumbled on the wreckage and scientists last week released incredible footage from robotic cameras showing the remarkably well-preserved 500-year-old ship. The world’s oceans are virtually littered with wreckage of historic importance.
