Episode Info:   An unfortunate accident befalls Chris in a stairwell, which prompts him to confront the opioid epidemic. What are these molecules, are they addictive, and are doctors solely responsible for their abuse? We talk about how all this relates to the Vietnam War, and we welcome back Myco Caine! Also: a fun lesson in cardiology as we debunk the movie FLATLINERS; a sing-along with The LEGO Movie; antidepressants and an early death; and one patron gets a very special thank-you. Note from the editor: Jonathan is not a sociopath.
