Director Skinner, will be joined on air by two patients featured in his upcoming documentary "Dialysis Diaries".
Bill inherited polycystic kidney disease from his father, and has a 50-percent chance of passing this genetic fate to one of his daughters. His situation inspired him to become a spokesperson for PKD awareness, going so far as to dress up as “Kenny the Kidney” at the Walk for PKD each spring.
A year after he was declared ‘GQ Man of the Year’ for his work against gender violence, Jimmie suffered a heart attack and renal failure. Only in his early 40s, this sad twist of fate has forced him to live with constant uncertainty.

Selling in a Skirt with Judy Hoberman with her guest Hanna Aneröd & Maura Sweeney
My name is Hanna Aneröd and I'm a filmmaker from Sweden but I film in different countries in the world. I make films together with my husband. I've discovered that we have different qualities that need to be equally used for both our relationship to work and our company to blossom. I'm developing my feminine power more and more and know this has been a piece of the puzzle missing. I've always had a big interest in women's issues and have got great knowledge while doing documentaries the last five years. I'm making several documentaries parallel that are about women. - One film, Thailand Dreams, is about Western men and Thai women and the line between love and exploitation. www.realityfilm.org
Maura Sweeney grew up in New Jersey – northern, that is and Exit 16W to be exact. I used to think I was articulate, pronouncing things like water (whaa’-tah) and coffee (kwah’-fee). I’d also reference others as “you guys” but never as “youz guys”. It wouldn’t be proper grammar for the girl voted Most Dignified in her Lyndhurst High School graduating class.
Long before Snookie and The Situation, I spent a number of very happy summers at the Jersey Shore- the brilliant sunshine, warm sand and sea air provide me with wonderful memories. At 15, I worked on the Pt. Pleasant Beach Boardwalk as a Jenkinson’s Pavilion Penny Candy girl. Literally earning pennies per hour, I was most proud to be wearing a uniform and earning my own wage!
Award-winnng documentary filmmaker Kevin Miller (Generation Rx) discusses what could become one of America's most challenging social issues: the effects from mass drugging of Americans under 21.
Over the past 20 years, prescription drugging of youth diagnosed as "ADD," "#ADHD," bi-polar, or other disorders has become the norm.
Anti-depressants, stimulants, and other mood-altering substances are being doled out to children who, just a few years ago, would have been seen as normal.
The impact from this rush to drug is only just now beginning to be felt.
