The Maryland Court of Special Appeals orders a delay in trial of Officer Caesar Goodson, the driver of the police van that transported Freddie Gray. WYPR reporter Kenny Burns has the latest at noon. 

Dr. Thomas Scalea, physician in chief of the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center

Then, the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center on University of Maryland’s Baltimore campus is the busiest such center in the nation, treating more than 8,000 patients annually. A new Discovery Life Channel series documents the life-saving work of Shock Trauma. We’ll hear about “the golden hour” - the narrow window of time physicians have to preserve a patient’s chance of survival - as well as the emotional toll of treating critically injured people.

Our guests: Dr. Jay Menaker; attending physician at STC and associate professor of surgery at University of Maryland School of Medicine; Dr. Brandon Bruns, attending surgeon at STC and an assistant professor of surgery at University of Maryland School of Medicine; Susan Hannah Hadary and John Anglim, producers for MedSchool Maryland Production.
