S3E34 / Gun Violence in America / #ThisIsOurLane
Joseph Sakran was shot in the neck as a teenager. He went on to become a trauma surgeon. When the NRA tweeted doctors should "stay in their lane," Joseph and others were outraged. Joseph started #ThisIsOurLane, an umbrella for health care providers and all the other communities who've lived and borne witness to gun violence.
