On this week's program:
There are only two women's hospitals left in the country...and one of them has been tapped to close. A New York State advisory commission has put Bellvue Hospital in Niskayuna New York on a suggested list of hospitals to shut down. That would make Woman's Hospital in New Orleans the last women's hospital in the nation. Why does this matter? What is a woman's hospital anyway... and how is it different from any other hospital? That's what I asked Anne Sailles, CEO of Bellvue Hospital for women...
The Holiday Season can be a very Romantic time of year. And it's one of the most popular times of year to pop the question. If you're newly engaged you're probably very excited and making all kinds of plans for the future. Well 51%'s money expert Susan Sweetser says don't forget the financial plans. Susan is an attorney and she heads up the women's market division for Mass Mutual Financial Group. And she's got some advice that a lot of people feel throws cold water on a new engagement...get a pre nuptial agreement.... I don't know Susan... doesn't it kind of suck the romance out of the whole thing?
Dar Williams shares an, unorthodox holiday story.
