We talked about how the rise of autism diagnoses seem to track wealthy neighborhoods (e.g. Beverly Hills), at the same time that public support resources allotted for children with autism is rising as funding for other developmental conditions falls. We also discussed the history of blood transfusions, and blood product alternatives that are used in hospitals for Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Which brings me to a meta question: While I am able to talk informally about the intersection of social issues and medical/science issues, I could also be more traditional and only talk about music stuff while on the radio. There’s plenty of stuff going on in the music to talk about too. I get the impression you guys like sociological analyses of science/medicine for some reason though. Thoughts?
