Uwe Reinhardt Show

Dec 13, 2017

Uwe Reinhardt was a health economist who not only understood the numbers of healthcare, but also was able to communicate them clearly and logically. He understood the social mission of healthcare better than most. Tune in for some of his best quotes as well as a discussion of why women are less likely to get CPR, and the benefits and problems with exercise.

Tip: antihistamines combine with decongestants are often helpful for the cough that follows a cold. Dextromethorphan, guaifenesin, and codeine are not.

The Struggle to Stay: Jewish Appalachians

Dec 9, 2017

Jewish communities across West Virginia are struggling to keep their traditions alive.

“It is actually kind of scary. I worry because a lot of people my age are moving away for, like, school or jobs and because of that the communities are getting smaller,” said Kirston Kennedy, a young Jewish Appalachian who inspired our show. 

In the next part of our occasional series on the timber and forest products industry – from seedlings to final products, we reach our first final product: hardwood flooring.
