Governor Kasich pledged $20 million dollars to invest in tech that can tackle the opioid crisis in last year’s State of the State address, and we’re now finding out where some of that money is headed. On The Sound of Ideas, we’ll talk with the head of Ohio Third Frontier about the big ideas coming to market, like alternative pain management devices and a 24-hour recovery hotline. And, how Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JP Morgan have teamed up to disrupt health care, and how local companies are attempting the same. Then, it’s time for our annual review of the best and weirdest ads of the Superbowl. Join us.
