Observer Radio Episode 34: Jails, Healthcare and Word Geekery

In this episode of Observer Radio, staff writer Emily DePrang explains that strategic word-smithery doesn’t change the fact that an inmate processing center is pretty much a jail. UTMB student Rachel Pearson joins us to discuss her recent story about experiencing the healthcare system’s shortcomings first-hand at a volunteer clinic in Galveston.

In our guest spot we’ve got Michael Erard who is launching a magazine dedicated to long form pieces about language.
