Nutrition ... there's the stuff consumed to stay healthy and then there are the ways you feed your brain. On today's show, two very different angles on that idea.

First, Downtown Las Vegas is home to an array of businesses that are taking entirely new approaches to long-time industries. The 9th Bridge School, which opened its doors just a week or two ago, rips apart old conventions of education and tackles the learning process with a fresh eye. Connie Yeh is spearheading this new endeavor and joins today to talk about this unique facility.

Now about food ... You are what you eat. Guess what. So is your dog. Unknown to many people your dog's nutrition is actually a crucial element not just of its physical health but also how it behaves. Have a dog that's overly excitable and you just can't control it, chances are that a contributing factor is what it's eating. On today's episode, Cathy is joined by Jillian Plaster, trained chef and now canine cuisine creator from The Dog House in Las Vegas.
