Show Notes

In this episode Montgomery County commissioner Val Arkoosh, a longtime physician, talks about her candidacy for the U.S. Senate in 2022. Arkoosh, a Democrat, discusses her experiences with women having abortions, the frailty of America’s public-health infrastructure, why she’s in favor of banning fracking in Pennsylvania, and what distinguishes her from her fellow Democratic Senate candidates. Arkoosh also shares her thoughts about the other physician in the Senate race,  controversial Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz. Says Arkoosh: “It's hard for me to believe we even took the same oath when we graduated from medical school."
