Tracking Taxes, Mormons Go Digi, and Newspaper vs Newpaper

Hosted by

As procrastinators hustle to make the midnight deadline for filing their taxes, we take a look at where our tax dollars actually end up. And can competition actually hurt the quality of journalism in a market? We’ll take a look at the launch of the Los Angeles Register. Plus, the Mormon Church is using the internet and social media to revamp their outreach efforts. Then, Lesli Jamison’s new book The Empathy Exams delves into our capacity as humans to feel for one another, and why that empathy may do more good for us than others. Finally, new research shows that our motor skills start to deteriorate at the ripe old age of 24. Are we over the hill by our mid-twenties?
