Last year, Ohioans voted to change the way Congressional districts are drawn in an effort to thwart gerrymandering, but the new process doesn't start until after the 2020 census. A federal lawsuit challenging the current map begins its trial phase this week. On The Sound of Ideas, we discuss the map and preview the case. Later, how police are using mindfulness and yoga to destress and connect with the community.
