This Saturday's Show (Feb 10): The Face of Addiction - A Survivor's Story
This week we take a look at the personal side of opioid addiction as we get up-close with one survivor and his story. Hear about his descent into brutal addiction, repeated failures to escape his lifestyle and consequences, and his eventual and ongoing recovery. This week we welcome Billy. And this is one show you and your family shouldn't miss.
To listen: Saturday, 2/10, 9A ET, AM1290/95.7FM, WHIO. Also on whio.com and the iHeartRadio app.

NO, IT DOESN'T TAKE A LIBRARY.
Planning for your future...and for those you leave behind...means a certain amount of "getting your house in order" with regard to the detailing of your wishes and instructions. But it doesn't mean tasks you can never realistically complete. The Research Staff at There is a Season is working on an all-new Legacy File (maybe even a new name for this important resource) and it's on the way soon!
ALL ABOUT ARTHRITIS
In this show, we welcome Dr. Richard Davis II and Dr. Michael Greisser of Premier Orthopedics along with Rochelle Abbott of the Arthritis Foundation for our discussion, "All About Arthritis." We'll look at causes, risk factors, diagnosis and treatment, the latest research, plus tips for better living with arthritis in your daily life.
ROBOTS: THE FUTURE OF CARE-GIVING?
The next 10-15 years include projections for a serious shortfall in professional care-givers. Meanwhile, more and more sophisticated robots seem to be filling the void, especially in Asia. What's next for us as we age in this country? Check out our discussion in this podcast.
