Producer Roman Mars interviews Dr. Paul Linde, author of "Danger to Self: On the Front Line with an ER Psychiatrist," the book that inspired this radio show.

Absolutely loved this program, listened to it while I was sitting outside of the ED where I work, on a break from caring for a couple of my 5150's. I have been fast approaching a 5150 myself trying to find the music from "The Kid Runs" segment...pleaaase, pleeease post, at least, this music segment (if not all - because they're all fantastic). Before I become 5250! Love, love the show.

Love the music in your program. Can you post a list of all the cuts you used? Thanks!

5150 was non-stop entertainment, right out of the box. Fantastic music and beautifully edited. And the stories were chilling, humorous, and moving, sometimes all at once. Everything radio could and should be - you had me on the edge of my seat, hanging on every word!

I also like the 5150 radio program, this is full of non-stop entertainment. I listen to it where-ever I go weather it is in my office desk or at home. I do not miss it. Beautifully edited fantastic songs makes my mind free from any tension. I also want to dedicate the song in this program but, I don't know where and how to reach up to you.Actually, I work on voip phone systems and as it is related to technology, I have to be updated with every single information happening around city and in this your program is mine favorite one.

We just aired on KALW last night, so you can now hear Snap judgment in the bay.
