This episode includes engaging interviews with author Chris Guillebeau and a doctor who runs her own micro medical practice, where she does it all from taking blood pressure to billing insurance. Also in the hour, you'll hear about a rock star returning to his DIY roots and a road trip that involves pretty much every form of transportation besides a car. This episode also includes a piece on the most controversial subject we've ever covered on the show: self-induced abortion.
