Jack Kevorkian discusses his decision to run for Congress at a news conference on March 24, 2008 in Southfield, Michigan.

Two decades after becoming one of America’s most polarizing figures, the man known for his participation in at least 130 assisted suicides returns to the limelight with a new HBO documentary. “Kevorkian,” directed by Matthew Galkin, provides an intimate look at Dr. Kevorkian’s controversial crusade for “death with dignity.” Despite having served more than eight years in prison, Kevorkian today insists that he has no regrets. Larry talks with Kevorkian about his complex life, career and the new doc, which airs on HBO June 28th.
