Extremely educational, well done podcast. Very good investigative reporting. The guest speakers were knowledgeable and charismatic. Ms. Proescholdt researched the topic completely and accurately. I have been in the pharma business for over 25 yrs, working in Regulatory Affairs. I speak from experience, when I say the information provided in this podcast is accurate.
Ms. Proescholdt provided a discussion that was clear, concise, well paced and informative. It should help move this country in a positive direction regarding prescription drug pricing.
