    State-Level Reforms for Addressing Opioids

    When politicians start telling doctors how much pain medication they may prescribe, they're essentially practicing medicine. For pain patients, the consequences can be devastating. Jeff Singer argues that trusting patients and physicians is key to properly addressing patient needs. Law enforcement, he says, should play no role in questions about the standard of care patients should receive.

Sometimes I wonder

I generally like this podcast, but every now and then I wonder how Cato employs some of its people. Gene Healy today (2/16/21) said B Clinton's lying about a blow job was arguably less serious than D Trump's lying about inciting violence, and was worse than R Nixon's cover up and obstruction of justice. Is this guy for real?

Rational Reporting

Love this podcast for its lack of emotion and simple, factual reporting on the important issues facing our country. Interesting and informative guests and concise format.

The one star reviews are hilarious

Very good, intelligent analysis from the conservative side in short form. Don't mind the one star reviews from Trump cult members who flip out anytime their chosen one is rightly criticized. They've been eating too many memberries.
