Nov 25 16
In the final episode of season 12, Matthew Loftus joins us to discuss his medical work in Yei, South Sudan, where he and his family lived until recently. We talk about ethical decisions in medical practice, wrestling with mortality, and lessons that medicine and theology can teach us about race relations. It's a really good conversation and a high note on which to conclude season 4! We also talk about our plans for season 5 and announce the books that we will be reading in our Vernacular Book Club!

This show has so much variety, with a new guest each time...I learn something new every time I listen.
