You know what you don't want this holiday season? The flu. It's worse than a lump of coal. But the flu is hitting hard, and the flu shot may not help as much as hoped. On The Sound of Ideas, we'll discuss your flu questions with the medical director of the Ohio Department of Health. Then, what to do with the kids or visiting family over the holiday break. We'll have guests with some great ideas, and we'd love to hear yours. And, a local toy inventor won a $100,000 grand prize and a contract with Mattel for winning a contest on the ABC show, The Toy Box. We'll meet the recent Hiram College grad and ask what's next up his sleeve.
