Maryland is grappling with what to do about the surge in overdoses of prescription pain pills and heroin.  Governor Hogan’s emergency task force has released its interim report.  We touch base with Baltimore’s health commissioner and a program coordinator on the Eastern Shore about how they’re approaching the epidemic. 

Then –  We speak with David Simon, producer of HBO’s famous depiction of Baltimore street life The Wire about Baltimore’s crime surge and Simon’s latest  HBO miniseries, about on public housing.

Plus: Two student filmmakers tell us about their web show Marylandia, a spoof of the Independent Film Channel hit Portlandia. It puts a comic edge on community issues like police brutality and transgender rights.
