This hour, host Anthony Brooks talks about the new report out from the city of Boston saying women in the workforce earn 77 cents on the dollar compared to men with Megan Costello, executive director of the Mayor's Office of Women's Advancement and Victoria Budson, founder and executive director of the Women and Public Policy Program at the Harvard Kennedy School. We also speak to Boston Globe technology columnist Hiawatha Bray who joins us from the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Finally, we talk to medical doctor turned journalist, James Hamblin. He hosts a web series for The Atlantic called "If Our Bodies Could Talk. A Guide To Operating And Maintaining A Human Body" and has now written a book by the same name. He answers listeners' health questions from how much sleep do you really need, to why men have nipples?
