Hi, I'm Maiken Scott, host of WHYY's The Pulse. This week, an intimate look at the lives of caregivers, and the many challenges they face. Also, how big pharma is trying to reinvent itself, the changing nature of frogs' mating calls, a second life for chicken feathers, and some serious science of the attractiveness of men's facial hair.
We really hope that you'll play a role in shaping the show, and what we cover. We'd love to hear from you. Do you have personal stories of illness, recovery or healing that you'd like to share for our segment "Patient Files"? Something that really irks you about healthcare? Heard about new science research, or a new trend? Comment below or tweet us @WHYYThePulse. And listen to us on 90.9 FM on Fridays at 9 a.m., or Sundays at 10 a.m. (rebroadcast).
