Food Irradiation: Who should we believe when some people tell us food irradiation is bad and others tell us it's good? Are people who support food irradiation in the pockets of big business? Are the opponents just alarmist kooks? What about the science? What does it show? This segment looks at the debate over food irradiation.
Rescues for Stupidity: Who is responsible when WE make mistakes? When we make costly mistakes, who should pay? Should our neighbors be responsible for what we do? This segment looks at risks people take and who pays the price.
Endangered Species: How can endangered species be saved? Why are they at risk of becoming extinct? What's the solution? This segment questions the commonly accepted solutions and presents a non-traditional answer to the diminishing numbers of certain animal species.
Needy Seniors or Greedy Seniors?: Are our senior citizens living at the expense of our youth? Shouldn't they pay for their own health care? What was the purpose of Medicare? Who is responsible for our health care? This segment looks at the costs of health care for senior citizens and the future of the Medicare program.
Universal Pre-K: Should all children go to preschool? What are its advantages? Are the benefits of universal pre-kindergarten worth the expense? Is universal pre-K the answer? If it is, what is the question? This segment looks at debate over universal pre-K.
Border Patrol: Does America need to build a wall to keep foreigners out? How can the government protect America's borders? Who exactly is trying to come in, and why don't some people want them to? This segment looks at the efficacy of building a fence between the United States and Mexico.
