We start the show by exploring the choices that each of us make every day in how we interact with the world.  We explore how the way we treat and take the time to really see each other (or not) has rippling impacts in our local communities and across the world.  No pressure or anything! Then, we get the inside scoop on how the NRA is trying to derail the nomination for Surgeon General, simply because the nominee has stated the obvious in the past:  Gun violence injures people. Next up we get the lowdown on the experience one woman had with getting paid less than her male co-worker despite equal resumes. Finally, we get the inside scoop about the Dunn trial and the need to end Stand Your Ground laws.

*Special Guests Include: Kathy LeMay, award-wining author, noted speaker, and founder, president, and CEO of Raising Change; Dr. Chris Lillis, Doctors For America; Laura Mui; and Esther Armah, regular MSNBC commentator, international journalist, playwright and national best-selling author.

The show starts out diving into why 166 other countries have a guaranteed minimum number of paid sick days, but the US isn't one of them.  In fact, 80% of low wage workers don't have access to a single paid sick day here in the U.S. Then we hear from a person who has taken on the noble task of organizing state legislators, which is somewhat like trying to herd cats! There are some stories to be told here!  Next up we explore the choices that each of us make every day in how we interact with the world.  We explore how the way we treat and take the time to really see each other (or not) has rippling impacts in our local communities and across the world.  No pressure or anything!

We start out hearing the inside scoop about the SXSW, the uber hip conference of musicians and culture makers.  Then we move to talking about how the Stand Your Ground laws could impact you, your family, and your community.  And ask the important question: Is anyone safe with these types of laws on the books?  Next up we hear directly about the terrible, awful, no good Arizona law that tried to legalize discrimination (Yes, you heard that right: A bill that pretty much read like an Onion joke nearly passed.).  Governor Jan Brewer just vetoed that bill, but it was a close call. We'll hear what this trend means for the rest of our nation. Last, but far from least we hear from Sam Kass, the Executive Director of the White House Let's Move Campaign, and Monifa Bandele, about the latest wins in the fight against childhood obesity and for all kids to have access to healthy foods.
