Jeff Corwin's television program about wild animals is an up-close and educational look at wildlife. He talks with Todd about "The Jeff Corwin Experience", and his childhood interest in animals. He also talks about traveling the world, filming the animals, and the dangerous and funny moments with the creatures.

Todd talks with Michael Stevens, of the Naval Research Laboratory, about high-altitude, night-shining clouds. Stevens explains why these clouds glow, what they're made of, and what they tell us about the Earth's changing atmosphere.

Catherine Lord, director of the University of Michigan Autism and Communication Disorders Center, talks with Todd about why it is important to diagnose and implement educational strategies early in an autistic child's life. She also explains how to recognize autism.
