Last October, Ben Jealous, the former head of the NAACP and a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, issued a report outlining what it will take for Baltimore to eliminate the trust gap between police and Communities of Color.  And, it’s the "Year of the Black Male" at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African-American History and Culture.  Charles Bethea is the Chief Curator at the Lewis Museum. Ben Jealous and Charles Bethea  join Tom in-studio to discuss what’s changed and what still needs to change since the violence that shocked Charm City 13 months ago.  

 
And, Smart Nutrition:  The Biggest Loser is a reality TV show in which contestants shed enormous amounts of weight over a period of just a few months.  Our Nutrition Diva, Monica Reinagle, gives some tips about losing for the long term.
