In this episode, Dr. John and Murphy are joined by Rebecca Holliman, an expert in the way that the pharmaceutical industry functions and how drugs get through the system (or don’t). She’s here to talk about the recent news of Metformin, a drug that could be the holy grail of anti-aging.  Luckily, we got to keep her around to talk about her experiences in the FDA decision over “female Viagra” Flibanserin and her insights into the ex-CEO Martin Shkreli who has been all over the news this week for being subpeonaed by Congress for inflating the cost of a life-saving drug from $13.50 to $750.  Also, Dr. John and Rebecca talk about how a drug gets through the system and who is involved in the process.  Tune in to hear all about this very weird, very complicated system.
