The perils of silent cars
Electric cars make almost no sound. We talk with an activist with the National Federation of the Blind about the perils that silent traffic could pose for the blind as well as pedestrians and bicyclists. And we look at the regulations that require carmakers to include sounds in car design.
Pressure builds for changes to methadone distribution
U.S. Sens. Ed Markey and Rand Paul introduced legislation last month to ease the rules around the distribution of methadone, a synthetic narcotic used to treat opioid addiction. We speak with a professor at UW-Madison’s School of Pharmacy about the push to expand methadone access.
