Online Shopping Traffic (11:09) Anne Goodchild, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor and Director at the Supply Chain Transportation and Logistics Center for the University of Washington. Her research interests lie in the analysis of logistics systems, with an emphasis on freight transportation. Zappos, Etsy, eBay, and Amazon are some of the largest online retailers in the world. Online shopping continues to grow, but what does this mean for delivery trucks? Cities, like Seattle, that were built long before UPS and long before next-day deliveries need to revamp the way they manage commercial vehicles to avoid a sea of traffic. Dr. Goodchild shares her research with the Urban Freight Lab. Why can't you accept a Compliment (57:06) Katherine Hawley is a Ph.D. in the Department of Philosophy at St Andrews University in Scotland. There is an art to congratulate and compliment others and sometimes we feel awkward or resentful when given a compliment. Katherine Hawley explains how that stems from a mix of mistrust and misunderstanding. Screen Cleaning (1:33:13) Jeff Simpson talks about movies and TV helping you find family-friendly options. Actress Marsha Dietlein joins the show today to talk about a new film she was in, Getting Grace.
