  • Food Friday: Puerto Rican cooking and recipes

    Puerto Rico is part of the United States, but the rest of the country isn’t as familiar with its culinary style. The author of a new cookbook of Puerto Rican recipes joins us to share the culture.

  • Importance of laughing for physical, mental health

    Laughing, something we might do to avoid uncomfortable situations and other times when we find something to be hilarious, is an emotion that can bring long- and short-term health benefits. A philanthropist joins us to talk about why she’s laughing and what makes her laugh these days.
