Food, Fun and Entertainment - Memorial Day Special

For Memorial Day, WMRA presents a special called  Food, Fun, and Relationships from the program series Innovation Hub. All those popsicles and ice cream cones you're gearing up to eat? Hear Dr. Robert Lustig explain why new research shows that we're addicted to sugar. Then, before you head off to Epcot and the Magic Kingdom, we look at what made Walt Disney so innovative.

Plus, kids might be out of school for the summer, but we're all still impacted by peer pressure, in ways we don't expect. Pulitzer-prize winner Tina Rosenberg looks at the unexpected science of peer pressure - and how it may sometimes benefit us.
