Kidneycast Episode 27: Kidneys and Organ Transplants in the News


There’s been some new transplant news in 2017! We spend this episode discussing France’s new opt-out organ donation system (and why we think it’s a better idea than an opt-in system). We also discuss a recent transplant op-ed piece we disagreed with and talk about why we think a pay-for-organs policy would be a terrible idea.

The article we discuss at the end of the podcast: “We’re not here for your inspiration” is available here.
