When you work in the service industry and you get sick, there's likely no insurance plan to cover the bills, and probably no paid leave should you need to take time off. On The Sound of Ideas we learn about a local nonprofit working to help service workers in need. Later, how ballet dancers are staying healthy using sports medicine. Plus, Laura DeMarco discusses her latest book, "Mark Twain's America: Then and Now."
