Ben Goldacre uncovers some ways that drug companies mislead doctors and can harm patients. And New York Times family columnist Bruce Feiler talks about how to teach kids values and how to make your families happier.
Ben Goldacre argues that the pharmaceutical industry is broken—from the research and testing to education to the drug approval process. In Bad Pharma: How Drug Companies Mislead Doctors and Harm Patients, Goldacre shows that problems have been shielded from the public and explains how data manipulation and research misconduct on a global scale affects us.
Bestselling author and New York Times family columnist Bruce Feiler discusses being squeezed between caring for aging parents and raising children. He set out on a three-year journey to find the smartest solutions and the most cutting-edge research about families and then Feiler tested these ideas with his wife and kids. The result is The Secrets of Happy Families, a look at how families can draw closer together, and answer the questions: How do we manage the chaos of our lives? How do we teach our kids values? How do we make our family happier?
Host Leonard Lopate lets you in on the best conversations with writers, actors, ex-presidents, dancers, scientists, comedians, historians, grammarians, curators, filmmakers, and do-it-yourself experts.
