Curbing Midnight Snacking (0:00:00) It’s the middle of the night, dinner was only a few hours ago and breakfast feels like eons away. And yet... your stomach is already rumbling, craving a little midnight snack. But, should you give in? According to nutrition experts, midnight snacking isn’t always bad, but left uncontrolled it could become a serious health issue. Here to discuss managing our midnight snack impulses is dietitian nutritionist, Penelope Clark. Preventing Child Sexual Abuse (0:13:53) This one’s a sobering story. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children estimates that over 26 million new files of child pornography are uploaded to the internet each year. These online images translate into real-life behavior at terrifying rates. How can we protect our children from this growing scourge? Where is the risk coming from? To fill us in is Kristen Jenson, founder of the anti-pornography campaign Protect Young Minds. Theater Etiquette (0:34:13) At one time or another, we’ve all had to sit behind the tall man with an even taller hat at our niece’s school play. We’ve also sat in front of a fellow Hamilton enthusiast singing every word to every song. Besides tainting our experience at the theatre, bad etiquette puts us in a horrible mood. Fortunately for us, Tony Gunn, a theatre professor, actor and director, joins us to share the dos and don’ts of going to the theatre to make sure we are having the best experience possible without ruining anyone else’s. 23 and Your Cat (0:50:25) You might have heard of 23 and Me, the service that tells you all about your ancestry and where you’ve come from, you might have even done it yourself! But have you ever thought about figuring out more about your pet’s ancestry? Basepaws does just this—a sort of 23 and me service for you cat. So, what are the benefits of knowing all this information about your cat? Why would this matter? Here to tell us all about it is Anna Skaya, founder and CEO of Basepaws.  How to Keep New Year’s Resolutions (1:03:12) By now, we’ve all gotten very good at making New Year’s resolutions, and we’re pretty good at keeping them for the first week or two of the new year. We’re almost halfway through January, and some of us are already probably slipping because we’re too busy, too lazy, or just plain too tired. We’ve made all of these great goals, so how can we keep them? Laura Vanderkam may just have the answer for us. Laura is a time management and productivity expert. We thought she’d be the perfect person to talk to about how to keep our New Year’s resolutions. Weekend Review (1:21:12) Lisa and Richie talk about the new movies coming to theaters this weekend and fun activities happening across the country.
