Asian Carp; Opioid National Emergency; Children Who Witness Violence

[Photo: Flickr.com/Asian Carp Regional Coordinating Committee]

Asian Carp continue to threaten the health and well being of the Great Lakes. We reel in a new report on efforts to stop the invasive species from spreading.

Ohio may be ground zero for the opioid epidemic; but it affects the entire country. Should the U.S. declare a national emergency? And could a community-based approach help stem the crisis?

Then we go behind the canvases at the Cleveland Museum of Art, to see how their conservation team readies new works for your viewing pleasure.


Listen to the full Sound of ideas program focusing on domestic violence.
