Host name: Julie Sabatier (suh-BAH-tee-ay)  

Segment A: Cindi Swingen chose to be a single mom. Her two children (10 and 13) have the same father — a man none of them knows who donated sperm at a local clinic. She talks about why some things are easier on your own. 

Segment B: A visit to a DIY Bio lab and an interview with Marcus Wohlsen, author of Biopunk: DIY Scientists Hack the Software of Life. 

Segment C: A two part interview with Dr. Peter Goodwin, who was instrumental in creating Oregon's Death with Dignity Law. Fifteen years after it went into effect, he used the law himself to end his life after a six year battle with a terminal brain disease.
