Tom Hall talks with David Grimm
In a severe thunderstorm, you might hear someone say, “it’s raining cats and dogs.”  In the United States, even in the sunniest of weather, it really is raining cats and dogs. More homes in the United States have cats and dogs than have kids. There are more than four times as many feline and canine residents of American homes than there were in the 1960s, nearly 150 million, one of them for every two of us. In a new book, the Baltimore-based writer David Grimm takes a look at how the status of our animals, in our homes, and in our society, has changed over time.  It’s called Citizen Canine: Our Evolving Relationship with Cats and Dogs.  David Grimm talks about it with Tom Hall.

Financial Worth of a College Degree - 6/3/14

In recent years, some of the shine has worn off the notion of acquiring a college degree.  Young people today have become increasingly focused upon the perils of accumulating student debt and have also become acutely aware that having a college degree is hardly a guarantee of successful economic outcomes.  But new analysis produced by the Economic Policy Institute suggests that the economic argument in favor of college degree acquisition remains potent.  The pay gap between college graduates and everyone else reached a record high last year.

Berries

June  3, 2014 - Radio Kitchen - Berries

One of the biggest cravings I have every spring is for fresh, local fruit.  Last year's apples are still available, that's true.  But I'm thinking of something a lot fresher and a lot juicier.  And it's just our luck that nature arranged for two succulent berries to be available this time of year:  strawberries and blueberries.

Healthcare Salaries - 6/2/14

Physicians represent the most highly trained members of the health industry’s workforce.  But on average, they are not the highest earners in healthcare.  That distinction belongs not to those who deliver care, but to those who oversee the business of medicine.  An analysis conducted by Compdata Surveys on behalf of the New York Times determined the following – the average insurance chief executive officer makes $584,000 per annum.  The average hospital CEO makes $386,000 per year, and an average hospital administrator takes home $237,000.  That compares to $185,000 per year for a general d
