Andrew Denton investigates the stories, moral arguments and individuals woven into discussions about why good people are dying bad deaths in Australia – because there is no law to help them. I first posted about this series in November 2015.
If you wish to be better informed about assisted dying this series is a MUST to listen to. Each episode approaches the issue from a different aspect. Episode 16, “Abandon Hope” in which Andrew Denton interviews Paul Russell of HOPE No Euthanasia, is particularly revealing.
I would have liked to hear Andrew question Paul Russell on terminal sedation!

Other episodes demonstrate the inhumanity and lack of compassion in the present legal and medical system for those with a terminal or incurable illness facing unbearable suffering.
