For some reason, changes, events, work and life gets in the way of many of the things that you enjoy. It appears that over the last 5+ years, life got in the way of these blog posts. Although I continued to listen to TAL sporadically, I forgot how much I enjoyed sharing my favorite episodes with others. My township built a new walking trail in Chester County Pennsylvania. In the early days of this blog, I walked on the local roads braving the blind curves listening to the TAL podcast. That was on my old iPod, which by the way still works but have no use for since it is now stuck in IOS version 4.1.2 and won't accept new apps worthy of downloading. I'm on an iPhone now and semi-retired and walk the new trail.
I listened to #579 and realized how much has changed in these 5 years. I can't understand why many hospitals across our country have made conscious decisions to put the hospital employees first and the public second. I thought it was supposed to be the other way around. The statistics are staggering. Listen to this story about a young man who needed serious help and got the opposite. Then read about what you heard in the New York Times.
I have some podcasts to catch up on some my next few posts may be our of order as I work backward.
