Next, CHF’s Bob Kenworthy explains how an old manufacturing town in Pennsylvania is attempting to clean up its tainted land from our Asbestos show.

Distillations #151 – Tears

And the trifecta is complete – this is Distillations final episode of our three-part series Blood, Sweat, and Tears. In this show, reporter Douglas Smith talks to a friend who can’t make tears. Then, a segment on the excessive tearing caused by onions, and how one scientist is trying to bioengineer a no-cry version.


And here’s the third and final video from Josh Kurz about the three types of human tears, with a little help from Elizabeth Bennet.
