Jack M. Shapiro, host of the famous nationally-syndicated radio show, “Medi-Politics,” announces construction of the “Medi-Politics Radio Archive,” the audios of which will be found on his website: www.jackshapiro.com

From 1997-1999 Jack Shapiro was the host, writer and producer of “Medi-Politics,” a nationally-syndicated, hour-long radio show which appeared on the TalkAmerica Radio Neworks. Every Sunday afternoon, “MediPolitics” reached 31 million people from coast-to-coast and on the internet (Marketron, Spring 1998).

The show’s concept was to focus on the future of healthcare by examining advances in medicine, the political issues related to healthcare in America, medical ethics and legal consequences, as well as how media covered these issues. “Medi-Politics” was America’s private seminar on healthcare.

Jack Shapiro conducted in-depth interviews with almost 400 thought leaders in medicine, scientific research, politics, law, bio-ethics, authors, members of the media, academia, government administrators, and Nobel Prize winners.

The value of these shows is due to their universality. The same issues still remain today, seven years later, largely unresolved and even more serious than ever. The Medi-Politics Radio Archive will permanently chronicle the evolution of these issues and where future trends are likely to take us.

The Archive will be an on-going free source of information for journalists, writers, scholars, and anyone in the general public interested in the history of modern healthcare.
The “Medi-Politics Radio Archive” will be made available free to the public but, of course, there are significant costs in programming these famous tapes for internet usage. Contributions to this historic undertaking will be greatly appreciated and can be mailed to the address found on this press release.
