The ongoing frustrations of life: losing the car keys, being stuck in traffic, paying down a mountain of bills.  These are daily, mundane annoyances, ones we all deal with, but we can keep them in perspective with the help of some of history's greatest thinkers:  Socrates, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche... Today, it's philosophy for everyday.  Todd talks with author Alain de Botton.  His book is "The Consolations of Philosophy".

Fitness guru Edmund Burke supports a new approach to fitness and healthy diet.  He wants athletes to eat real food, instead of health and vitamin shakes.  He talks with Todd about what happens to the body during exercise, and why we do not have to avoid "unhealthy" foods. Burke is the director of the exercise physiology program at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs.
