How do you set a price on staying alive? In this episode of “Deep Dive,” Arnold Ventures Co-Chair Laura Arnold sits down with David Mitchell, founder of Patients for Affordable Drugs, who began his fight for drug pricing reform after a devastating diagnosis of an incurable blood cancer. The cost to keep him alive each year: $325,000. They discuss a broken system built to serve those who profit—rather than patients who depend on it for their health—and bust myths perpetuated by pharma to justify high prices.
