Liberating America From The Opioid Crisis with Harry Nelson
Harry Nelson, America’s Leading Health Law Expert, Lays Out Roadmap to Tackling the Opioid Crisis When Michael Jackson died of a drug overdose in 2009, his doctors – panicked by the coming investigation – called Harry Nelson. Over the past 15 years, this pattern was repeated in one deadly celebrity overdose after another. Doctors turn to Nelson because he is the leading legal expert on prescribing practices, addiction, and the interrelated issues around standards of care in medical care. He has become known for turning healthcare safety disasters into learning opportunities out of which safer, better healthcare can emerge. As a consequence, government regulators and policymakers have turned to Nelson, the founder of L.A.’s largest healthcare firm, Nelson Hardiman, to advise on the most sensitive and challenging emerging health policy issues. He was one of the first lawyers in the country to develop a framework for compliance in cannabis, helping to shape California law and pushing for expanded clinical research on other plant-based controlled substances, and continues to play a leading role in the expansion of telehealth and machine learning in medicine. Nelson has also played a key role in education and advocacy, including his leadership of the Behavioral Health Association of Providers, sharing insights on evolving challenges with 30,000+ subscribers and federal and state policymakers. The United States of Opioids: A Prescription for Liberating a Nation in Pain, published by Forbes with a Foreword by Lisa Marie Presley, is Nelson’s second book, following his co-authoring of From ObamaCare to Trumpcare: Why You Should Care (2017), an analysis of America’s healthcare policy challenges. Nelson is a leading expert on America’s healthcare future and is frequently called on to make sense of the most complex aspects of our healthcare system, delivering valuable insights for healthcare providers, government, consumers, employers, and investors.

Ep 47: Finding Faith and Losing The Nobel Prize with Professor Brian Keating
What if sciences most coved prize was a golden calf in disguise? When was the first time you looked deep into the night sky? When Brian Keating was a young boy looking into the night sky, he noticed a brilliant light coming from the moon and a nearby star (later confirmed as the planet Jupiter) and realized he needed to know everything about the cosmos. Today, Keating is a Professor of Physics at the Center for Astrophysics & Space Sciences at the University of California, San Diego, and newly the author of Losing The Nobel Prize: A Story of Cosmology, Ambition, and the Perils of Science’s Highest Honor. As a call for the reform of the Nobel Prize system, Losing The Nobel Prize points to many of the ethical and social missteps of the Prize’s current practices that inhibit its promise of a meritocratic and scientific approach to the entire study of science. The book delves into topics such as: the religion of atheism, the misinformed “sanctity” of the Nobel Prize, the pitfall human condition of idol worship, and the ultimate humanity of science. In today’s episode, he sits down with us in his office at UCSD to discuss the inspiration behind the book, some of the major realizations he had while writing, and his overall philosophy in regards to the topics discussed in the book.
