Opium: How An Ancient Flower Shaped and Poisoned Our World

In a new book, Dr. John H. Halpern and documentary filmmaker David Blistein trace opium's use over millennia, starting with the discovery of poppy artifacts in ancient Mesopotamia. In Opium: How an Ancient Flower Shaped and Poisoned Our World, Halpern and Blistein describe the global spread of opium, through trade and war, and how some medical practitioners of ancient times, while refining its power, issued warnings about opium that resonate today: "The sweeter the dreams, the rougher the

Leaving Manchester VA, Montoya Defends Handling of Flies in Operating Rooms

Flies have once again forced the closure of now all three of the Manchester VA's operating rooms. This comes just as Medical Center Director Al Montoya is preparing to leave the Manchester VA for a job leading the Connecticut VA system. Montoya took the helm as director in July 2017 when the past director was removed from her position after 11 whistleblowers came forward with allegations of mismanagement of a variety of things, including how to remove flies from the operating room.

The Impossible Climb: Alex Honnold, El Capitan, and the Climbing Life

We revisit our earlier conversation about life on the vertical with Mark Synnott, elite climber and author of "The Impossible Climb: Alex Honnold, El Capitan, and the Climbing Life." The book describes Synnott's personal climbing history, beginning with his early days at Cathedral Ledge in N.H., and documents the preparation involved in Alex Honnold's historic free solo climb of Yosemite's El Capitan.

Fifty-Two With A View: Fall Hiking in N.H.

We celebrate the fall hiking season with the author of a self-published guidebook, "52 With A View: A Hiker's Guide," detailing the New Hampshire peaks under 4000-feet with trails and a rewarding vista. Originally conceived in the late 70s by a group called the "Over The Hill" hikers in Sandwich, the 52 peaks are located throughout the state, and are appropriate for different hiking abilities - lower elevation does not necessarily mean less challenging!

Scanning N.H. Skies: Diminishing Bird Numbers

Birds are a good indicator of environmental health, and a recent study shows a drastic decline in the North American bird population - with three billion birds gone since 1970. The numbers were drawn with help from the birdwatching community. We see how this decline is playing out in New Hampshire, and look for inspiration from some successes in the Granite State.

Rebroadcast: Why Women & People Of Color Face Lower Quality Healthcare & Worse Health Outcome

Disparities in healthcare quality and outcomes for gender (including people who are transgender ) and race are receiving more attention: for example, recent reports show black women have much higher mortality rates during and after pregnancy , and women and people of color receive less medical intervention for pain management and cardiovascular care. We discuss the history, systems, and personal biases that contribute, in a multitude of ways, to these disparities. Original air date: September 16

Weekly N.H. News Roundup: October 4, 2019

NHPR's Casey McDermott hosts the Weekly New Hampshire News Roundup. New Hampshire was hit with a lawsuit over its new limits on chemicals in drinking water on the same day the new regulation took effect. In a rare reversal, the state Attorney General's office says a Claremont fatal police shooting is no longer considered legally justified. Syringe services were long ago adopted in some parts of the country as a useful public health tool. Why, in a state hit hard by the opioid crisis, has New
