This week on the show: 2024 Presidential Elections, Careers in Engineering, & Horses

In this week’s episode, Nick outlines the role of the president in this week’s Politics on Point.

An engineer has answers to your questions about his job.

And we meet some horses helping people build their strength and confidence.

Camp Cheerful, located in Strongsville, Ohio, opened as Ohio's first camp with recreation programs for children with disabilities in 1947.

Today, children and adults with physical, developmental, and sensory disabilities can take part in and benefit from various activities and programs. One program they have is therapeutic horsemanship.

In this week’s episode, we interview an equestrian about her therapy with horses.

For our write-to-us this week we want you to tell us about a time when an animal helped you feel better.

Animals have a remarkable ability to positively impact human mood.

Interacting with animals, whether through companionship or therapy, can provide emotional support and enhance overall well-being.

For this week’s poll, we want to know do you have any pets?

You can choose between: Yes, I have a pet. Yes, I have more than one pet. Or No, I don’t have any pets.
