Listeners call in with anecdotes of corporal punishment in their education, some of them becoming emotional. Then, Executive Editor Joe Wiesenfelder shares what he’s seen at the Chicago Auto Show this week, the car shopping patterns of 2020 and the trends of vehicular manufacturing. “Eye on Travel” Host Peter Greenberg gives John one key tip for booking an affordable and comfortable vacation, and encourages listeners to rest assured when it comes to the Coronavirus. Finally, John gives you the Bright Side of Life.
