Renowned hematologist-oncologist, researcher, and writer Vinay Prasad joins us to discuss his views on modern clinical and research practice. A prolific scholar, Prasad has been upending conventional wisdom for years. We discuss the effectiveness (or not) of cancer screening, a more realistic take on the cancer moonshot, and continual conflicts of interest issues in medicine. Be sure to follow Vinay on Twitter @VinayPrasad82.

Our lightning round focused on work requirements for Medicaid (and 1115 waivers in general), scoring the individual mandate, the alchemy of precious metal tiers in an age of Trump, and why the shopping metaphor is so misguided in health care.
