In the past month, I spoke on media ethics to undergraduate students at the University of Minnesota School of Journalism, spoke to physicians and researchers at the Mayo Clinic, spoke to journalists at the Knight Science Journalism Fellowships at MIT’s Medical Evidence Boot Camp, and then spoke to the KSTP-TV newsroom staff in Minneapolis-Saint Paul.
But to try to reach Everyman, talk radio helps. So when Tom Hauser of KSTP-TV filled in for Joe Soucheray’s Garage Logic program on KSTP-1500 radio, and he asked me to fill some of the time with him, I agreed.
You don’t turn down Garage Logic invitations. It’s an institution in radio, celebrating its 20th year on the air this past year. 20 years is an incredible run in radio.
You can listen to the segment by clicking on this link:
Garage Logic regularly pokes fun at health care news that seems to make no sense, and they introduce many such segments with the theme song from the old Ben Casey TV show. Our discussion was undoubtedly more complicated and more serious than the usual Garage Logic fodder, but I was pleased to have the chance to talk about our work in this forum.
So now, I can retire. My career has reached its pinnacle. I’ve been on Garage Logic, even if the Mayor himself was away for the day.
