Our new short asks doctors how they want to die, and takes a hard look at what their choices might tell us about making our own plans.

"Never In A Million Years."

That's what the physicians I know have said, when we've talked about treatments like chemo.

Short term? OK.

But to be in it and the new normal for less than a few years?

No.

One factor that I think makes a difference? Professionals, in general, plan for the end, from the beginning.

They know that their families will be ok, so holding on doesn't seem as necessary; tho: holding on, for anyone, isn't exactly the most conducive time to begin estate and legal planning for life's last laugh.

Hey there, thanks for the suggestion -- we're just getting our sea legs here on G+. For the record, this one's a blog post from Lulu (no audio). But lots of fun science, and a pretty killer illustration...

This was such an interesting and slightly strange story.  Who knew crane suits were so important? Great job +Radiolab!  Keep them coming.

The mystery of how and why is solved in the comments found in the article link below: "Hello, I have been to Gryfino last May,and took many photographs of the trees, some of them from very close to try to understand.
First, what is striking is that they look like the trunk has been cut off when they were young and that the side branch that grows when you cut this kind of tree was held down before letting is grow straight up. This is the only way I can explain why the first bending of all crooked trees is at an angle and never a curve.
Second thing to remember: Gryfino, was German when the trees were planted.
So if we want to find information about furniture and cabinet makers who would have used them we should look at German Jugendstil style (1900/30), which is noted for its numerous curvilinear features.
For me this tree farming could have been started as a way to have strong, not carved curves but would have been abandoned with Jugendstil not becoming as popular and everlasting as the growers would have expected... and curves being replaced by the pure straight lines of the Bauhaus."

Is Radiolab journalism or story telling? This is one of the main questions that I had after listening to this episode. I am reminded of Jad's incredulousness during his interview with Daisy about Apple, how Daisy presented his story telling as journalism.

The outcome of this episode really brings out further issues about how we conceive knowledge, journalism and truth among cultures. It needed to be handled much more sensitively taking into account these cultural differences, and I am surprised that it wasn't considering the time Radiolab had to edit before broadcast.
