Stress -- Stress may save your life if you're being chased by a tiger, but if you're stuck in traffic it more likely will make you sick. The program takes a long hard look at the body's system for getting out of trouble, and speaks Stanford University neurologist Dr. Robert Sapolsky about the mechanics of stress and methods of coping.

The Diet-Climate Connection -- Understanding the footprint of what we eat is a revelation for many of us who contact our food not in the sunlit fields, but in the fluorescent-lit aisle of the grocery store. And people concerned about climate change are just starting to focus on the large but under-appreciated role our food system plays in the problem. The program talks with health experts, climate scientists and the emerging movement of urban farmers who grow their own food in sustainable ways.

'America Doesn't Need a Strong Dollar Policy' -- It's often taken for granted that America needs a strong dollar. When the value of the U.S. dollar is strong relative to other currencies, it becomes attractive to investors and allows Americans to buy foreign goods and services cheaply. But in times of recession, are we better off with a weak dollar that stimulates U.S. manufacturing by making our goods cheaper and more competitive? Or will the loss of purchasing power and currency manipulation abroad, offset the potential gains?The Oxford-style debate program returns as panelists tackle the motion, "America doesn't need a strong dollar policy."
