The State of the Union and Health, a Story of OCD, and Recovering Looted Art

Hosted by

During last night’s State of the Union Speech, President Obama called for state and federal legislation expanding paid sick days and family leave for workers. We look at how California’s laws could be a template for new national policies. The president also talked about “personalized medicine.” What is it, and is it the future of healthcare? Then, the Islamist extremist group ISIS is threatening to kill two Japanese hostages if Japan doesn’t pay a $200 million ransom by Friday. What are the government’s options? Journalist David Adam talks about his new book, a memoir about his own struggle with obsessive-compulsive disorder. And finally, a family that’s been fighting the Norton Simon Museum over paintings that were plundered by Nazis during World War II. What’s at stake in the case, and what could it mean for other artworks around the country with similar histories?
