The Poison Boy Podcast: PBP039: Guardian Angels and Gilded Razors

This is it, Safety Rangers. This is the podcast you have been waiting for. As a follow-up to last week’s Venomous Media Review, I sit down and get naked with the Guardian Angel of Physicians – Dr. Pamela Wible. We discuss her book, Physician Suicide Letters and the state of wellness in general. After that, I review “The Gilded Razor” a brand new memoir of addiction and recovery by Sam Lansky and we wrap things up with the Toxicology Week in Review from February 1 – 11 and cover such disparate topics as the first convocation of the Supreme Court, the murder of Nguyen Van Lem, Robinson Crusoe and Punxsatawney Phil, Darryl Strawberry and the 47 Ronin, Jack Kevorkian, Cassius Clay, Gomer Pyle, the Devil’s footprints, George Harrison’s tonsils, Japanese internment, Tom & Jerry, the Simpson’s Comic Book Guy and everything else that is important and cool on the Greatest Podcast in the World.

Punxsutawney Phil and his ridiculous, incredulously asinine predictions.

Dr. Jack Kevorkian meets the press in homemade stocks before his arraignment on assisted suicide charges at the Oakland County courthouse in Pontiac, Mich., Thursday, Sept. 14, 1995. Kevorkian, a retired pathologist who advocates doctors helping the terminally ill who wish to commit suicide, was wearing the laminated cardboard stocks in apparent reference to a state Supreme Court ruling that said assisted suicide could be prosecuted in Michigan under common law.
