Suicide attempts are heavily stigmatized; the flu spreads across the US; there are some weird home remedies out there; raw water is ridiculous.
Show Notes

Laura has the flu. Robin has bronchitis. And we've been sick ALL YEAR LONG.

In this episode: People who attempt suicide are getting mistreated in emergency departments, on college campuses and, well, pretty much everywhere. (Did we mention we're sick?) The flu is spreading across the country. (Laura could have told you that without a news story.)Wacky home remedies may be just as effective as some "gold standard" treatments. (We know, we've tried everything.) And raw water is the latest health trend that's not only unhealthy but pretty scary as well.
