Cutting back on drinking can feel like it comes with a social cost. We talk with an author about how to avoid FOMA, or fear of missing alcohol. We also take a look at this year’s significant weather events, like Halloween’s snowstorm. Plus, we chat with a Wisconsin farmer who invented ear muffs for her calves.
