If you live on the North Fork, chances are you or a friend or family member will have been infected with Lyme disease or one of the other tick-borne diseases stemming from the overpopulation of white-tailed deer in our area. Because it is both prevalent and mysterious, over the years considerable local interest has centered on the details of the disease’s symptomatology as well as of its prognosis, treatment and recovery. Hazel Kahan’s guest on this month’s North Fork Works is Catherine Muth of Greenport, talks about her chronic battle with Lyme disease and how it has changed not only the arc of her life but her very self. North Fork Works produced by Tony Ernst. North Fork Works programs are archived.

Why do Americans vote at a lower rate than voters in any other advanced country? Maybe because that’s the way our election system intends it. And can we get real democracy in the US? We talk with political scientist Patrick Barrett about his article, Can We Change the Political System? Strategic Lessons of the Bernie Sanders Campaign. Then we re-air our 2008 interview with muckraking reporter Greg Palast about his book Steal Back This Vote.
