Even though the differences between male and female brains are constantly making headlines, a science journalist tells Veronica Rueckert and Rob Ferrett that men’s and women’s brains aren’t so different after all. They also learn how incarceration statistics misrepresent race, listen to a Wisconsin Life piece about trilliums, and find out why the number of stay-at-home moms are on the rise in the United States.
