Defending the Olympic Brand Guest: Shontavia Johnson, JD, Trademark Law Professor and Director of Drake University Law School’s Intellectual Property Law Center The Olympics are everywhere, all over the news and social media. But the image and brand of the Olympics is managed and policed – even in the wild west of the internet. Trademark law expert Shontavia Johnson says the International Olympic Committee is virtually without peer in its ability to maintain a gag order on companies who are not official sponsors of the Olympics.  Lack of Pharmacies Increases Re-Hospitalization Guests: David Lee, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Oregon State University’s College of Pharmacy; Sarah Bissonnette, PhD, Oregon State Postdoctoral Fellow Nobody wants to end up in the hospital. Being readmitted after you leave the hospital is even worse—and represents a multi-billion dollar problem for the health care industry. Congress even passed legislation five years ago to penalize hospitals with high readmission rates. New research from Oregon State University suggests that one way to keep people from ending up back in the hospital is to improve access to pharmacies.  Evolution of Modern Prayer Guest: Daniel Falk, PhD, Professor of Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies and the Chaiken Chair of Jewish Studies at Penn State University Gathering together in prayer is a prominent ritual among Jews, Christians and Muslims.  So it’s a little surprising that scholars say prayer doesn’t really show up much in ancient religious records. The Hebrew Bible, for example—which Christians call the Old Testament—has detailed rules for all sorts of behavior – but Penn State scholar Daniel Falk notes there’s not a single law about prayer.  The Apple Seed Guest: Sam Payne, Host of BYUradio’s “The Apple Seed” Sam Payne joins us live in studio to share stories of tellers and tales. How People Value a Car’s Form vs. Function Guest: Raj Echambadi, PhD, Professor and Senior Associate Dean of Strategic Innovation for the College of Business at the University of Illionois Why did you buy your car? Were you most concerned about the look of it? The comfort of the seats, the way it handles, fuel-efficiency? The balance between form and function is a complicated puzzle automakers wrestle with in their quest to win you over. Navigating Sexuality as a Chaste Single Guest: Jennifer Finlayson-Fife, PhD, Chicago-Based Psychotherapist, Expert in Human Sexuality and Relationships Some new research suggests that for all the criticism about Millennials being selfish and promiscuous, today’s young adults are having less sex than their parents did in their early 20s. Sex-before-marriage is still the common behavior among American singles, but there remains a small segment that chooses to abstain while single. Link to Jennifer Finlayson-Fife's website.
