Late City Edition: Thursday December 12 at 9PM

Nelson Mandela passed away on Thursday at the age of 95, and spent his last few months hospitalized. Tune in this Thursday at 9PM for a conversation with Dr. Stephen Mayer, director of the Neurological Intensive Care Unit at Columbia University Medical Center. In this interview, Dr. Mayer discusses his experience as an intensive care physician, the modern epidemic of slow, high-tech death, the lack of meaningful conversation about death and end-of-life care in today's society, and why we should talk about death at the dinner table.
