Cleveland Orchestra Violinist Assault Allegations And The #MeToo Movement & The Pain Scale

The Cleveland Orchestra suspended its concertmaster, William Preucil, and he's resigned from the Cleveland Institute of Music after The Washington Post last week detailed sexual misconduct allegations against him. On The Sound of Ideas, we'll discuss the Preucil allegations, the #metoo movement, and what's changed, given that Cleveland Scene had the Preucil story more than a decade ago. Then, we'll discuss how to talk about pain with your doctor, and why research shows the 0 to 10 pain scale may not be the best method.
