Episode 62: Short-Cuts Don’t Cut It Sometimes


In episode 62 of the Constant Crisis News & Opinion self-help and humor podcast, Ham & Chuck marvel at our modern world’s wonders: drive-thru mourning, pot-bellied pigs (literally) and North Korea’s latest demonstration of its technical prowess. Plus a hopeful look at one of the most painful issues anyone could ever face – suicide – and new tests that may enable doctors to help those most in need.
