The Economy Grows, Prenatal Testing Problems, and Boozy Science

Hosted by

We start with a look at the economy. It’s growing, but is that good news for everyone? Then, just in time for the holidays, a look at the science of booze. Next, we hear from an investigative reporter about unreliable prenatal tests, which are leading to more abortions by women who think there are problems with their pregnancies. After that, we talk to a researcher who’s found that women carry their children’s cells long after giving birth, and the surprising health benefits. And finally, a conversation with former AP reporter Linda Deutsch, who retired yesterday after 48 years of covering L.A.’s biggest trials -- from Charles Manson to Phil Spector.
