Product Description Focused on her busy career, rising through the ranks of management in high-tech, it was easy for Linda Edwards to dismiss individual symptoms as they appeared, especially when doctors told her they were not life-threatening. Even with her eventual diagnosis of scleroderma, her positive outlook, resilience, and faith kept her pushing through life. It wasn’t until she was facing death, frail, and her breathing compromised, that she realized it would take a miracle to save her. Join Linda on her journey of survival. In Breathing Again… A Joyous Miracle: My Journey with Scleroderma, she shares the role of faith, family, friends, and the medical community along with her lessons learning to live with chronic illness.

#492 Flint Water Crisis This week we dig into the Flint water crisis: what happened, how it got so bad, what turned the tide, what's still left to do, and the mix of science, politics, and activism that are still needed to finish pulling Flint out of the crisis. We spend the hour with Dr Mona Hanna-Attisha, a physician, scientist, activist, the founder and director of the Pediatric Public Health Initiative, and author of the book "What the Eyes Don't See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City".
