This episode turns the tables: Host Dan Weissmann gets interviewed about what he’s learned this year, and what’s ahead for the show— with T.K. Dutes, an ace radio host and podcast-maker … who was a nurse in a previous life, so she knows a thing or two about the health-care system. (She chronicled her career transition in an episode of NPR’s Life Kit.)
And here we learn: During her nursing career, she was uninsured. She’s got some stories about life before-and-after health insurance.
T.K. also coins what could be a new tagline for this show: “Where there’s money, there’s going to be scams.”
Check out Open World, a terrific podcast T.K. published recently with fellow superstar Rose Eveleth. The first episode features a reading by and discussion with the writer N.K. Jemisin, who won a MacArthur “genius” award the day after the show came out. (Clearly, the MacArthur folks were listening.)
Here’s a transcript of this episode.
