Good episode? Give it some love!
We're back for Series 7, with the incredible Ruth Coker Burks. In 1986 at the height of the AIDS crisis, in a deeply conservative America, Ruth began to care for the men dying of this unexplained disease. As ever we talk, grief, hope + giving dignity when no one else would.

Ruth's book, ALL THE YOUNG MEN: How One Woman Risked It All To Care For The Dying by Ruth Coker Burks, is published by Trapeze in hardback, priced £16.99. Signed copies are available exclusively at Waterstones.com
