The Future Of MD Pensions; Workplace Mentoring; New Federal Nutrition Guidelines


As the General Assembly considers how to fund today’s needs, how does it take tomorrow’s into account? We check on the health of Maryland’s state pension system with Dean Kenderdine, head of the State Retirement Agency, and Liz Farmer, who reports on public pensions for Governing magazine.

Then – We usually think of mentoring kids after school or on weekends, but what about at our workplace? Tom Hall profiles a program that takes mentoring into the office.

Plus, theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck brings us two reviews today: Iron Crow Theatre's "The Revelation of Bobby Pritchard" and Glass Mind Theatre's "The DumDums".

And the government is preparing its five-year update of dietary guidelines later this year. Tom talks with nutritionist Monica Reinagel about what we can expect.
