epekilis echoed 332- The Accidental Room

Ok this is why 99pi will always be my favourite podcast, no matter what other ones I discover. Deep in the utility passages of a mall is a hidden room that nobody remembers. Some prankster artists move in and live there rent free for 4 YEARS. 😄🍾

I took 2 main messages from this episode: 1. The critical role that savvy media/PR can play in influencing public policy; and 2. The unintended impact of rare drug laws that enable research while also enabling six figure unaffordable drug pricing.
