Award-winning journalist Nancy Mullane and former San Quentin inmates and murderers will offer a glimpse into the lives of convicted killers who have done their time and are now struggling to live on the outside again. Mullane's book "Life After Murder" follows five convicted murderers sentenced to life with the possibility of parole in their struggle for redemption, their legal battles to make good on the state's promise of parole and the lives they encounter after so many years inside.

    Marketplace Money Military Spending and the Fiscal Cliff Tax hikes are one part of the "fiscal cliff." The other is so-called sequestration or automatic spending cut in government programs. If politicians can't agree on a deal to cut the deficit, the Pentagon alone faces half a trillion dollars in cuts. Defense spending typically brings to mind expensive weapons programs -- planes and tanks and the like. The show takes a look at what those cuts could mean for active duty personnel and returning veterans.
