FROM THIS EPISODE

Living donors can donate a portion of their liver, lung or pancreas but the need for kidneys -- more than100,000 people in the US alone are waiting -- is overwhelming. Why must we rely on a donor system? Are there options that could include creating an organ market? Kidney transplant recipient Matt Holzman speaks to two experts in the field about the politics, the procedures and the ideas that could help speed up the availability of organs.
