Hosted by Clayton Morgareidge, this program looks at how medical care is improved when delivered by people who are cooperating rather than being managed from the top; whether charity keeps us from dealing with the real probems; the new Todd Solandz movie Life During Wartime; and music that keeps lost causes from being forgotten so that they may rise again and succeed.

Work done cooperatively and among equals gets better results than what comes out of a top-down, hierarchical organization.   According to Dr. Robert Reid, this is demonstrated by the medical care provided by Group Health Cooperative, a consumer-governed, nonprofit health care system that coordinates care and coverage in Washington and Idaho.  Here Reid talks with the Old Mole's Bill Resnick about this kind of medicine.
