New Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby comes into office as the nation is focused on prosecutions in cases of police-related deaths. We ask how she will approach the issue, what agenda she’s setting for the State’s Attorney’s office, and about recent firings of prosecutors mid-trial.

Then, how do blows to the head affect the brain? We talk with a professor at the University of Maryland School of Medicine about the impact of long-term brain inflammation, which is more widespread than you may think.

Plus, “Annie” is up at the Hippodrome Theatre through February 1st. Tom Hall talks with the man who wrote the lyrics of its legendary songs, including “Tomorrow,” written early in the process.

Joining us by phone is Dr. Alan Faden, a neurologist and professor of anesthesiology. He and his colleague David Loane, assistant professor of anesthesiology, published research on this issue last week.
