Organ Donation is pretty descriptive. It involves serious medical alignment. In this episode Mike & McD get schooled on the science behind finding matches from Adam Blacker, histocompatibility scientist, about the technology and physical process for Organ Procurement.

Way before he started matching DNA at for his current role, Blacker spent plenty of time in a lab paying his dues. His recount of the mentors who affected him and honesty about the advice he takes to heart is really touching. 

For our more detail based listeners, Blacker gets specific about procuring tissues, heart valves and even gives a story or two about growing up as a kid near Detroit.
