Big pharma to pay up for role in opioid epidemic (full show)

The latest on the fallout surrounding the opioid—as Purdue Pharma’s attempt at a bankruptcy settlement of thousands of lawsuits has been rejected by a federal judge. Many blame the company for the much of the two decade long opioid crisis in the US, which hit a never-before-seen milestone of 100,000 deaths in one year. RT America’s Alex Mihailovich has the latest. Then, attorney Michael Bixby, legal and media analyst Lionel and host of Watching the Hawks Tyrel Venture join a panel to share their perspectives.  The race for space tourism continues to heat up—with Russia now saying it will increase its involvement with plans for four Soyuz launches per year. This after a Japanese billionaire and his assistant made history by becoming the first to travel together in a Russia spacecraft to the ISS. Professor of Business Strategy with a focus on Space Commercialization joins In Question to discuss the future of the space tourism industry.
