Podcast

08 Dec

I’ve been searching for a good podcast from conservatives and have recently started listening to ‘Consider This!‘  I was drawn in by coverage of market forces acting to moderate drug prices following what I personally consider the loathsome actions of Martin Shkreli. “…(who) was criticized last month after his Turing Pharmaceuticals company announced an increase in the price of Daraprim from $13.50 to $750 per capsule after buying the rights to sell the drug. Daraprim is the only approved treatment for a life-threatening parasitic infection. “(from the CT! Podcast)

Daraprim is the trade name for Pyrimethamine ,  a medication used for protozoal infections. Mark L. Baum, CEO of Imprimis Pharmaceuticals, announced it’s selling an alternate medication to Daraprim for $1 a capsule according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

With luck, Imprimis will be successful in its campaign to launch an affordable alternative thereby undercutting profit-gouging by the Hedge Fund investor-cum-pharma CEO,  Shkreli.

If any of you know of a good conservative news / opinion feed, please let me know. I’m eager to hear well-reasoned conservative takes on the news from newcasters less interested in partisan politics and more interested in valid, fact-checked arguments.
