Q&A

The contradictions which underpin anti-suicide efforts in an era of euthanasia, and are there any honest and unbiased journalists left these days?

Some more listener questions: what kind of line is crossed once a country legalises euthanasia and how can a state simultaneously fund suicide prevention for some while offering state-sanctioned and facilitated assisting dying for others? Will this contradictory worldview eventually collapse under the weight of its own incoherence?

Then, we respond to a listener who has been struggling to know where to find news which seems uncontaminated by either conspiracy theories or cynical commercial concerns? Are there any news outlets left which offer genuinely non-partisan impartial news? Or is that even something worth aiming for these days?
