Episode 19 - Heath Care with Artie Vierkant & Beatrice Adler-Bolton

We tackle the art world’s relationship to health care (spoiler: if you’re in the US, it hardly exists). We also discuss the massive societal failures that are actively causing mass death for chronically ill or  differently abled people. Finally, we get into the government’s fraught and complicated relationships with the pharmaceutical and insurance industries. Read Artie and Beatrice’s pieces:
