Juniper French in the NICU
Cherie Diez

Radiolab debuts. Red River Radio will bring Radiolab to our listeners every Tuesday Night at 7 p.m. In This hour, we spend the entire episode on the story of Kelley and Tom, whose daughter was born at 23 weeks and 6 days, roughly halfway to full term. Their story raises questions that, until recently, no parent had to face...an entire universe of questions about the lines between life and death, reflex and will, and the confusing tug of war between two basic moral touchstones: doing no harm, and doing everything in our power to help.
