Studying, we've all had to do it, but it's usually not something that is taught in schools. Studying is much more than just preparing for a test, and unfortunately, most students have to figure it out on their own. Whether you have a college student, you are a student YOURSELF, or you have a school-aged kid, you'll want to listen to this one!  In this episode, our own David Bailey shared about how to study for academic success.

The One About Youth Vaping

The Surgeon General has declared e-cigarette use by youth an epidemic. More than 3.6 million U.S. youth, including 1 in 5 high school students and 1 in 20 middle school students, currently use them.
