Should We Lower the Drinking Age?

Should We Lower the Drinking Age? June 25, 2014

It's a fact of life that many college kids drink. Some of them drink a lot. And most aren't of legal drinking age. The solution, says Hiram College President Tom Chema, is to lower the drinking age from 21 to 18 and re-institute weaker 3.2 beer. Regulation, not prohibition, says Chema. And he's not alone. But opposition to that concept is strong. 21 saves lives, they say. What do YOU say? Discussion, tomorrow morning at 9 on the Sound of Ideas.

Religion in America

Religion in America June 24, 2014

A recent survey suggests that Christianity is still the dominant religion in America. More than three-quarters of Americans identify as Christians, but the number of atheists is on the rise. In 2007, 1.6 percent of Americans identified as atheists, but today that number is 2.4 percent. We'll talk about Americans' changing beliefs and attitudes towards religion.

Aging Out of Foster Care

Aging Out of Foster Care June 23, 2014

Foster care can be a savior to a child in need, providing a home, a family and crucial support in a time of desperate need. But what happens when that child ages out of the foster care system? A percentage of them end up on the streets -- homeless. Monday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas, we'll meet with folks trying to help children about to age out and young adults who already have. And we'll discuss efforts to hike the emancipation age in Ohio to 21. Join host Mike McIntyre.
