Online Dating and the Law (1:03) Guest: Curtis Anderson, J.D., BYU Law School Target, Home Depot, Sony Pictures and even the US State Department have been the target of hackers and large data breaches. But the hacking of adultery website Ashely Madison seems to be in a league of its own. Some 33-million customer account details – including very private personal information – have been spilled onto the internet. The company’s CEO has resigned. The cheating intentions of high profile people – including government employees with top secret security clearance – have now been outed. Canadian police have even tied a couple of suicides to leaked Ashley Madison customer details. Sodium Intake (20:46) Guest: Mary Cogswell, Ph.D., Centers for Disease Control and Prevention New research from the CDC finds the average American adult consumes way more sodium than recommended.

Apple Seed (36:40) Guest: Sam Payne, BYU Radio Sam Payne from The Apple Seed joins us. Antibiotics (49:22) Guest: Maryn McKenna, Investigative Journalist The World Health Organization has declared antibiotic resistance a major health threat.

It’s tragic, but not unusual. Police officers die on the job at 3 times the national average for occupations. And you’d think that the most dangerous places to be a cop would be cities with the highest rates of violent crime. But recent analysis by researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health indicate homicides of police officers correlate most strongly with statewide gun ownership, rather than violent crime rates.
