What do you wonder about the Puget Sound region?
You asked, we answered.
On today's show:
SoundQs on The Record
KUOW is launching a new podcast devoted to your questions! It’s called SoundQs, and today host Deb Wang joined Bill Radke in studio. We spoke to some curious listeners: below are those questions, and their answers.
Opioids and medical bias
Ashley asked, “why do they offer opioids for a colonoscopy but not for a mammogram? Is there gender bias involved?” We asked Kristina Adams Waldorf, professor in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the UW School of Medicine, and Steven Stanos, medical director at Swedish Pain Services.
Graveyard on Graham Street
“There used to be a cemetery on Graham Street,” wonders listener Sharon. “Is it still there?”
Born, bred, and lost in Seattle
Camille was born and raised in Seattle. She asks, “am I the only one that feels like they don't fit in or belong here anymore?” We spoke to another caller, Nadja, who feels the same way. She left for college and returned to find the Central District demographically transformed. Kate Griffin from the Seattle Newcomers Club had some suggestions.
