WINER: But getting cooler.

SAGAL: That’s good to hear. And what do you do there?

WINER: I actually work in Charlottesville, Virginia, about an hour away. I’m a nurse anesthetist, certified registered nurse anesthetist.

FAITH SALIE: Are there are nurse anesthetists that aren’t certified and registered, because I don’t want them?
