Jeff Shero Nightbyrd, who was a major figure in the ’60s New Left and underground press movements, is our guest on Rag Radio. Jeff, our long-time friend and colleague, had a serious heart attack in 2014, and underwent triple bypass open heart surgery, which he discussed in a widely-read Rag Blog article.
On the show Jeff discusses his personal experience and some lessons he learned about heart health that he hopes will help others who might have a heart attack or who would like to avoid having one.

Rag Radio is a weekly hour-long syndicated radio program produced and hosted by Rag Blog editor Thorne Dreyer. The show is produced in the studios of KOOP 91.7-FM, a cooperatively-run all-volunteer community radio station in Austin, Texas, and is first broadcast and streamed live on KOOP every Friday from 2-3 p.m. (CDT).
Jeff provides an intimate picture of his personal experience — with his heart attack, surgery, and recovery — while also offering some extremely useful insight into heart health, holistic health, and, in a larger sense, the strengths and weaknesses of our health care system. Jeff, who travels widely, also talks about health care in other parts of the world, especially Ecuador, where he recently spent time, and Cuba.
