(5 stars)

Dense presentations, this one on medical bioethics, featuring fast talking scholars and policy wonks, from an Oxford think tank. Very nice companion to see next to all the historical works discussing social issues in which LibriVOX is so rich. Recommend looking at the TOC for you are sure to find an issue that grabs you, then play town and gown for a while. thanks LibriVOX!!
