Mapping Health Care Access, Around The Water Cooler, And Photographing Pine Ridge

Cover of Aaron Huey's book, "Mitakuye Oyasin," a collection of his photographs from the Pine Ridge Reservation.

Mapping King County’s Uninsured
In 2011, more than 200,000 adults living in King County had no health insurance. Now officials are mapping where they live. Why? We talk with King County Public Health director, Dr. David Fleming.
 

Around The Water Cooler
The sunny days are dwindling. Are you making the most of your summer? We hear attendance at Seafair was down this year. Did you go? Musicians Choklate Moore and John Roderick and The Stranger’s David Schmader join us around the Weekday water cooler to talk over these stories and more.


Photographing The Pine Ridge Reservation
National Geographic’s Aaron Huey spent years on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Reservation photographing the Lakota tribe. His new book is called “Mitakuye Oyasi: All My Relations.”

Did you go to summer camp? Did anything memorable happen? Can you still sing your old camp song? Break out the s’mores, gather around the fire and we’ll swap stories.
