This week I spoke with Professor Donald Tomaskovic-Devey of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, about the situation of labor as we approach the Labor day holiday. And, I recently spoke with Cindy Cain, Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Alabama-Birmingham, about her recent paper titled “Quelling moral panics? The case of physician aid in dying in California”. The paper is scheduled to be published in Poetics and is sole-authored.

Segment 1 -- Cindy Cain on “Quelling moral panics? The case of physician aid in dying in California”

Segment 2 -- Donald Tomaskovic-Devey on conditions of work, the state of workers, and prospects for change this Labor day.
