May 19, 2014 show

What's up with POLST (Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment), and Senate Bill 3076? Ethicist Amy Martin from Presence Health joins Bob to clear up the confusion, noting the voluntary form "is meant to be protective of the person." Then, Professor John Kindt of the University of Illinois' College of Business joins the show to talk about the empty promises of gambling expansion. To wrap up the show, Rachel Ramirez and Leeanna Majors of the Chicago Coalition of the Homeless talk with Bob about how Senate Bill 3558 will help to reduce the scourge of human trafficking. Leeanna brings a unique perspective to the issue, since she is a survivor of human trafficking.
