FROM THIS EPISODE

This morning, the Supreme Court threw out caps on overall campaign contributions by individuals. We find out what the decision means legally and politically, and whom it will affect the most. Also, producer Matt Holzman talks with therapists about all the recent films depicting sex addiction. We hear about new research that says teens brains are built to stay up late and wake up late - even though that doesn’t jibe with current school schedules. And we hear about proposed laws that would allow the sale of raw milk across state lines.

Teens and Sleep 11 MIN, 45 SEC

Teenagers who sleep in on the weekends or fall asleep in class during the week aren’t necessarily lazy. A growing body of research suggests that their brains are different: wired to stay up later. And yet school starts really early. So a lot of teens aren’t getting enough sleep. Now some schools are changing their start times.

Raw Milk 10 MIN, 59 SEC

Raw milk, meaning unpasteurized milk, is only legal in around half of all states. Here in California, there are a few farms that can sell raw milk to consumers after going through a rigorous health check on the milk. Now two proposed laws in Washington D.C. would make it legal to sell raw milk across state lines, but the bills are being hotly contested by mainstream agriculture and some health experts.
