    Fantastic show, filled with knowledge every chronic pain patient should know, and the MDs that prescribe opiates for them. Not one comment, or thank you to NPR for making this available for free? There is a lot of ingratitude in this world, and there exists, IMHO, a chronic societal substrate of sociopathy.
