Judy Melinek has made a career of working with dead bodies. As a forensic pathologist, she has probed and prodded bodies for clues that may reveal murder, suicide, a medical accident or a rare genetic disease. In her book "Working Stiff," Melinek chronicles her two rookie years working in the New York Medical Examiner's office, a job she started two months before the 9/11 attacks. Melinek, now based in San Francisco, joins us to talk about a career straddling medicine and law.

Guests:

Judy Melinek, forensic pathologist, associate clinical professor UCSF Medical School and author of "Working Stiff: Two Years, 262 Bodies, and the Making of a Medical Examiner"
