Suicide Pods and Eating Plastic

A 3D-printed capsule destined for use in assisted suicide hopes to de-medicalize the process in Switzerland. Jeff and Anthony discuss the idea of choosing when – and how – to die. Then, each American might ingest up to a credit card’s worth of plastic through food and water every week. Anthony and Jeff talk about how this happens and what it might be doing to us.
