You may have to hit the pause button to lower your heart rate during Travis Rieder's moment-by-moment retelling of the motorcycle crash that upended his body and his life. But Rieder brutally reveals that this pain is only the pre-show. The worst of his suffering would come from getting off the opioids he was prescribed during his lengthy medical treatment. Transformed by his experience as a patient, Rieder tackles the opioid crisis in his work as a Johns Hopkins bioethicist. He mines the medical data with a pulsing intellect and a desire to push listeners into a new conversation about pain treatment that can truly save lives. Rieder's compassionate and honest performance will resonate with any listener who has experienced medical trauma or severe pain. J.T. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
