Apr 19, 2013

On the program, Sheri Quinn talks to author Caleb Daniloff about his new book called "Running Ransom Road," a vivid account of his 18-month-long experience running marathons in the cities he wrecked havoc in as an alcoholic. With each marathon, he confronted the past and paved his road to redemption.

In the second half, Science Questions profiles youth robotics competitions that are currently sweeping the nation, and they explore the robotic revolution with two engineers who are building two very different kinds of robots -- one that will help amputees walk better and one that will survey the world's oceans searching for everything from rare sea turtles and oil spills to pirates.
