CityStream: Global Health, Garbage & Ghosts
CityStream: Global Health, Garbage & Ghosts

The outlook is grim for cancer patients living in the world's poorest countries. Access to expensive treatment is unattainable. But Seattle's Max Foundation has become a lifeline to thousands of people, offering lifesaving medicine at no cost. Also, it has been piled, sunk, burned, buried and sent away. We trace how Seattle has taken out its trash -- with the help of the city's municipal archives -- and evolved into one of the cleanest cities on Earth. And, as Halloween nears, join us as we explore Seattle's dark side! Host Penny LeGate has these stories from the Woodland Park Zoo.
