Betting 10 bucks in the NCAA office pool is one thing. 40,000 on a single game is quite another. But it's typical for the professional gamblers of Vegas. Chad Millman shadowed such a guy for one stomach-churning season, and he'll tell us about it.  His book is "The Odds: One Season, Three Gamblers, and the Death of Their Las Vegas".

Janet Burleson, founder of Guide Horse Foundation, talks with Todd about training pygmy horses to lead the blind. Burleson explains how she came up with the idea, and how they train the horses to help people get around.

Amanda Foreman, historian, talks with Todd about the life of Lady Georgiana Spencer of eighteenth-century England. She talks about how Georgiana married into the aristocracy, achieved a high-profile role among rich society, and later became involved in the largely male-dominated world of politics. Foreman's book is "Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire".
