2016 Presidential Race (1:03) Guest: Quin Monson, BYU political science professor Challengers have been slow in coming forward to vie with former US Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party nomination. But the Republican Party's presidential pool is already crowded - and likely to grow more so before the first state caucus happens in Iowa next January. Six Republican candidates have formally declared and seven more are expected to join them. Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney has said definitively that he is not running again. Quin Monson joins us to analyze how the race is shaping up. Physicians Lack Physical Exercise Education (24:46) Guest: Brad Cardinal, professor of exercise and sport science in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences at Oregon State University Primary care doctors routinely ask patients about their fitness routine, they routinely urge patients to lose weight or get more aerobic exercise, and yet, less than half of physicians trained in the U.S. get any formal education in medical school about fitness and physical activity. That's according to new research led by Oregon State University sports science professor Brad Cardinal. He says the disconnect is worrisome, when you consider how many chronic health problems in the US are linked to obesity. The Apple Seed (39:45) Guest: Sam Payne, Host of the Apple Seed We listen to Syd Lieberman tell "Saved by a Sale" by Yuri Suhl. Girls in Justice (52:07) Guest: Richard Ross, award-winning photographer and Professor of Art at the UC Santa Barbara. His most recent book "Girls in Justice," documents the experiences of girls with the juvenile detention system.

Award-winning photographer Richard Ross attempts to capture their reality with images and essays in "Girls in Justice." History of the AP Test System (1:16:36) Guest: Trevor Packer, College Board's Senior Vice President for AP and Instruction High school students across the U.S. are in the grips of a panic.
