  1. I absolutely loved the case of the drunken teetotaler. It was so fascinating, it keep me at the edge of my seat. Bravo to you Dr. Nieters for cracking the case when no other doctor could!

  2. From the memory of a then ten year old… This presentation brings to mind a B&W episode, of the original Perry Mason (from the early sixties; maybe even the late fifties?), where he defended a client, accused of being a drunk driver; and demonstrated before the judge, how his client went from sober to ‘snockered’ within a couple of minutes, after being fed a few ‘soda crackers’. ‘Case dismissed’. But there was no resolution offered as to the future; for how this client needed to manage his underlying, biochemical condition, to avoid further arrest.

    1. Love finding this! Wait ’til I show my husband, David Stouder, sleeping just next to me in his “office” chair…he really likes Sherlock …and, of course, Dr John Nieters and David Stouder co-host the best radio shows.
      David, do you have a moment?
