Tell Somebody

Sep 2, 2009

Josh Stieber was in middle school on 9/11/2001.  Fear and terror and panic were contagious.  Josh joined the Army and did a tour in Iraq.

Reflecting on his expericences there, Josh came to believe that love can be just as contagious and just as powerful a force as fear was, and set off on foot and bicycle across the country.  Josh and a companion stopped on the side of the road outside of Sedalia, Missouri, and talked on the phone to Tell Somebody. 

Earlier the same day, Senators Kit Bond, John McCain and Mitch McConnell hid out in Childrens Mercy Hospital in Kansas City for a supposed healthcare town hall with a hand-picked audience of partisan supporters.  Tell Somebody heard from the protestors across the street.

And finally, we go to the archives to hear from Julie Pierce, featured in the film Sicko,  whose husband died after Cigna insurance denied treatment for him, and look back to when whistleblower Wendell Potter was still working for Cigna.
