    As far as I know, there were no symptoms of problems immediately following the surgery. She went into the hospital yesterday and they initially thought it was a heart attack. She either went into a coma or it was induced - not yet clear to me which. A few hours later we were notified that she had passed.

    Couldn't help but think of this article when I heard the news.

    Thank you. Really glad I got to visit with her a few weeks ago.

    I enjoyed this episode of Peter Attia's podcast, the drive, with Apolo Anton Ohno.

    Last weekend, I binge listened to Cold, a KSL podcast on the Josh Powell/Susan Powell tragedy. The season is not finished yet, but it's been really interesting, in a sad and twisted way. Steve Powell is a sick, sick man.

    Armchair Expert with Dax Shephard is pretty good. For being such a homely, awkward doofus, that dude has a really pretty wife and some awesome friends.

    The latest This American Life podcast has a gut-wrenching story about drug addiction, recovery, and relapse. Incredibly sad.

    It's the first story.

    Listened to this last night. At least most of it.

    I stumbled onto the podcast The Nine Club. It's a podcast about skateboarding hosted by Chris Roberts and Robert Bagley with Kelly Hart chiming in. It's really good if you're into skateboarding. The first episodes were a bit rough around the edges as they figured things out. It didn't help that their guests were friends or teammates. But as they've gone on they've gotten better production and guests. They recently had a 4 hour Lance Mountain interview that was rad. He talked about how he tithed his company The Firm into the ground. Anyway, for skating geeks it's a lot of fun.

    "The Dropout", by ABC news. It tells the Elizabeth Holmes story, and is based largely on the 'Bad Blood' book by Carreyrou. It's a short series, about 5 episodes, and done pretty well. The reporter interviews some of the head people of Theranos at the time. Sadly, no Holmes interview though.

    Not 'Serial' caliber, but good enough to finish.

    Broken Record, a Malcolm Gledwell and Rick Rubin project is a good one. Light and fun with some great stories and insights into the music industry.

    I just picked up the Conan O'Brien podcast-"Conan Needs a Friend" or something. It's fantastic.

    Just finished “The Dream”. Fantastic podcast on multi-level marketing. Talks about the history, how the FTC tried to stop them, but Dick DeVos as the finance chairman for the Republican Party met with Gerald Ford (both from Michigan) and was able to get a win for Amway. Since then, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush W, and Trump have all taken money from and shilled for Amway or other multi-level marketing companies. Madeleine Albright made $10MM pushing Herbalife. They note that a BYU related academic has found 99% of MLM participates experience a net-loss as product distributors. Utah also has more MLM headquarters per capita than anywhere in the world. Very interesting podcast, highly recommend.

    I’ll definitely listen to that one.

    I’ve always been fascinated by MLMs and by medical quackery. In the early days of the internet I used to spend hours reading articles at quackwatch.org and mlmwatch.org

    Why just sell stuff when you can sell “the dream”?

    My last boss sells Amway. He actually does pretty good with it, and continues to build his business. I think right now he makes $1000/month or so. I've traveled with him for business, and I've seen him strike up conversations with people after hours. It's like he's a missionary for Amway.

    Yep and that’s one of the worst things — working for an MLM can infiltrate and poison every relationship you have.

    That would be so stressful to view everybody in your life as a sales target.

    I’ve been listening to Root of Evil. It’s aptly named. It is disturbing on so many levels. But I can’t stop listening.
