The Winter Cycling Congress 2016 is being held this week in Minneapolis and Saint Paul. This is a three-day professional development event uniting an international group of people with a shared vision of increasing bicycling and walking among people of all ages and abilities through the winter. KFAI’s Rico Morales visited a group of organizers for this event.

One of KFAI's founders and a long-time program host, Charles Brin, died on Friday January 29, 2016.

He was 92 years of age. Charles and his partner, Beryl Greenberg, have been hosting Tuesday’s Spoken Word since KFAI’s inception in 1978, and have been bringing wonderful stories to KFAI listeners every week. The Spoken Word program was KFAI’s longest running show, and Charles’ robust dulcet tones brought the stories and characters to life in our imaginations.

Dr. David Agus has an informative conversation about the brave new world of medicine, one in which we can take control of our health like never before and doctors can fine-tune strategies and weapons to prevent illness.

In his first bestseller, The End of Illness, David Agus revealed how to add vibrant years to your life by knowing the real facts of health. In this book, he builds on that theme by showing why this is the luckiest time yet to be alive, giving you the keys to the new kingdom of wellness.

Medicine is undergoing rapid change. In the old world, you followed general principles and doctors treated you based on broad, one-size-fits all solutions. In this new golden age, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the latest scientific findings and leverage the power of technology to customize your care. Only those who know how to access and adapt to these breakthroughs—without being distracted by hyped ideas and bad medicine—will benefit. Imagine being able to get fit and lose weight without dieting, train your immune system to fight cancer, edit your DNA to avoid a certain fate, erase the risk of a heart attack, reverse aging, and know exactly which drugs to take to optimize health with zero side effects.
