College Football's Underbelly Most of us enjoy rooting for the old alma mater whenever football or basketball season rolls around. But does our love for college sports allow us to look past the sometimes nasty inner workings of university athletic programs? Should football coaches be making more than the university president, especially when he's earning his sometimes multi-million dollar paycheck from an unpaid youth labor force? And what about students who play at the college level for a year and then jump to the professional league without any plans to finish their education? Joining us to discuss the sometimes-seedy underbelly of college athletics is sports journalist Mark Kreidler.
 
Mixing Eastern and Western Medicine You may think Eastern and Western medicine mix about as well as oil and water, but there's actually quite a lot each style of healing can do for the same ailment. Sometimes herbs may cure a cold, sometimes aspirin may be do the trick. In some cases a combination of the two may ultimately help you feel better. Joining us to explain how you can heal yourself in and out of the hospital is critically acclaimed author Daphne Miller, MD. She is speaking at the Miners Foundry in Nevada City Friday, September 13 and believes in the strength of both Eastern and Western medicine.
