He'll discuss the problems with our health-care system and tell us how each of the presidential candidates approaches the issue of health care. Oberlander is associate professor of social medicine and health policy and administration at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Mark McKinney is best known for his work with the sketch-comedy troupe The Kids in the Hall. He was with Saturday Night Live from 1995 to 1997. The critically-acclaimed mini-series that he wrote and starred in, Slings and Arrows, is now out on DVD. It's about a dysfunctional Shakespearean theater troupe.
