Extensive NPR piece on testosterone

On Point | Testosterone

NPR's “On Point” (for Windows Media or Real Player) spends more than 45 minutes on testosterone, the Tour, and testing.

Austin Murphy, the Sports Illustrated reporter who was first to talk to Floyd Landis after the rumors of a positive A-sample, explains that the Landis doping case is pushing him away from the sport -- he's not sure he wants to be involved any more.

Tom Ashbrook, the show's host, also talked to John Hoberman, who wrote Testosterone Dreams: Rejuvenation, Aphrodisia, Doping, and with endocrinologist Dr. John Amory.

They also take listener calls, including a Rhode Island listener who had himself experimented with testosterone.
