Need to Know examines the financial cost of caring for veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. We also explore how the use of antipsychotic drugs on children has proliferated in the foster care system. An innovative community-based program helps fight childhood obesity, and satirist Steve Brodner illustrates an interview with author Eduardo Porter on the deepening income inequality in America.
