Crime Scene Kitchen ~ Former Congressman Patrick Kennedy ~ Tom Isern
Tuesday, June 8, 2021 - Imagine competing on a cooking show, complete with celebrity judges and timers and a film crew capturing your every move. Now imagine you’re not told what to make, but have to figure it out based on clues left in the kitchen. The detective and the baking shows are combined in Crime Scene Kitchen, which airs Wednesdays at 8 pm Central on Fox. Two contestants are from North Dakota. Thomas McCurdy, who now runs a farm in Vermont appears on the show with his mom Cathy Jacobson of Devils Lake. ~~~ Former US Congressman Patrick Kennedy is the founder and CEO of The Kennedy Forum, an organization dedicated to improving mental health and addiction services. He co-sponsored the 2008 Mental Health Parity Act. In this excerpt from the Conversations on Healthcare podcast, he addresses the toll the pandemic has had on mental health and addiction, and talks about efforts to address long-ignored mental health issues.
