Trauma and Health; Building Community In Retirement; JWR Theater Review; Lincoln's Last Speech

A symposium today at Johns Hopkins examines how trauma in the city affects not just the health of residents, but the health of the community itself. We talk with Dr. Leana Wen, Baltimore City Health Commissioner and a panelist at the event.

Then – Baby boomers are starting to retire. Author Beth Baker says they aren't doing retirement the way their parents did. Tom Hall talks with her about the ways the golden years are changing.

Plus: Theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck talks secrets, a cross country road trip, and a 91-year-old grandmother who takes center stage at Center Stage.

And – President Abraham Lincoln’s body traveled through Baltimore 150 years ago tomorrow on the way to burial in Illinois. We talk to Washington College professor and Lincoln scholar Richard Striner about the last speech Lincoln gave.
