A national public health expert out of Johns Hopkins University says Ohio needs to put more resources behind its fight to bring an opioid overdose epidemic under control.  The expert says the focus needs to be on getting more people into treatment--without waiting lists.  Then, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine looks to take the makers of opioid painkillers to court.    Plus, we'll talk to author Isabel Wilkerson about her book on the great migrations of African Americans out of the South.   She's one of the presenters at the first Arts and Humanities Alive! Festival.
