As measured by website hits, Jack M. Shapiro, host of the famous
nationally-syndicated radio show, "Medi-Politics," reports that inquiries to his
website have soared to an average of one every ten minutes since announcing the plan
to start of construction of the "Medi-Politics Radio Archive" on October 10, 2007.
The Medi-Politics Radio Archive audios will ultimately be found on his website:

From 1997-1999 Jack Shapiro was the host, writer and producer of "Medi-Politics," a
nationally-syndicated, hour-long radio show that appeared on the TalkAmerica Radio
Neworks. Every Sunday afternoon, "MediPolitics" reached 31 million people from
coast-to-coast and on the internet (Marketron, Spring 1998).

The show's concept was to focus on the future of healthcare by examining advances in
medicine, the political issues related to healthcare in America, medical ethics and
legal consequences, as well as how media covered these issues. "Medi-Politics" was
America's private seminar on healthcare with in-depth interviews with almost 400
thought leaders in medicine, scientific research, politics, law, bio-ethics, and
related fields.

On the topic of "Medical Advances and the Economics of Healthcare," for example,
Jack Shapiro and guests examined: What is the future of American healthcare? What
medical breakthroughs are on the horizon? Who are the uninsured and the
underinsured? Are we heading toward single-payer healthcare and medical rationing?
What's behind rising healthcare costs? Special healthcare problems of women and
minorities. Diseases of the future.

The value of these shows is due to their universality. The same issues still remain
today, seven years later, largely unresolved and even more serious than ever. The
Medi-Politics Radio Archive will permanently chronicle the evolution of these issues
and where future trends are likely to take us.

The Archive will be an on-going free source of information for journalists, writers,
scholars, and anyone in the general public interested in the history of modern
The "Medi-Politics Radio Archive" will be made available free to the public but, of
course, there are significant costs in programming these famous tapes for internet
usage. Financial contributions to help defray the costs of creating this historic
undertaking will be greatly appreciated and can be mailed to the address found on
this press release. If you would like to read more about the "Medi-Politics" radio
show, please go to:
