Military Mental Illness, Common Core 101 & Young Money

Hosted by

New reports say many soldiers already suffered from mental health issues before they enter the army. The studies found that nearly a quarter had a common issue like depression or anxiety -- that’s twice as many as in the civilian population. We talk about how that could affect vets’ access to healthcare. Plus, author Kevin Roose takes us into the debauched parties and 100-hour workweeks that were a part of the 2008 young Wall Street scene. We also get a look at the TV pilot season, and we get a ground-level view of the Common Core curriculum that’s headed into our classrooms.
