Feb 14, 2018

Segment 1: Can our employers help us get more sleep?

We've heard that getting a good night's sleep makes everything better; it's good for our health, our cognition and our relationships. Sounds simple, right? But falling asleep (and staying asleep) can be hard. Tomorrow, the KC Chamber of Commerce is hosting a forum on sleep for the business community. We hear from people who are trying to make their work culture more compatible with good sleep habits.

The KC Chamber hosts "Healthy KC Networking Forum: Sleep" on Thursday, February 15 at 7:30 a.m. For more information, visit kcchamber.com.

Segment 2, beginning at 35:21: Nostalgic treats and how candy shaped the United States.

Cherry Mash, the candy that's made in St. Joseph, turns 100 years old this year. On this Valentine's Day, we take a trip down memory lane with old-timey candy and hear about the larger history of candy in the United States.
