Every once in a while, (and sometimes each day) I listen to a great podcast, enjoy an article, or see a good video that I want to share with you.

Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm Ravaged Hospital tells a story in which economics, medicine, and ethics converge. About much more than the impact of Hurricane Katrina on one hospital, the book unforgettably portrays the haunting tradeoffs we make during emergencies.

I’ve just discovered a new podcast series that has made my daily four mile walks more pleasant. Called Business Wars, in the past it used seven episodes to present the origin and interaction for two companies that compete like Starbucks and Dunkin’. More recently, it has focused on one battle in one podcast. Do listen. It looks good.
