It’s an uncomfortable room. The chairs are heavy, the air is still, and all eyes are on Dr. Kris Radcliff. This was a family meeting no one would ever forget. Louise knew that a Family Meeting with Archer’s surgeon was her family’s chance to be together to ask questions. Like most of their other Family Meetings, it was an opportunity to discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly. But this time was different. It was far from their typical family meetings and would have a lasting impact. Through two interviews, Episode 4 explores this moment from both sides: through the eyes of Dr. Kris Radcliff, who performed Archer’s initial neck surgery, and from the perspective of Archer’s big sister, Paula Senft Easton. And, you’ll hear parts of a voice memo that was recently recovered from the night itself.
