Joe Santos, Ph.D., is here to explain what exactly the debt ceiling is and what happens if Congress fails to raise it. The consequences could be dire.

If you're losing sleep over that scary economic possibility, Jill Kruse, D.O., from On Call with the Prairie Doc would like a word. She joins to explain the health benefits of a good night's rest. And if you're struggling falling asleep or staying asleep, then that could be a sign of a lurking disorder.

Chris Huber of the Black Hills Area Community Foundation joins to talk about a number smaller than the debt ceiling but big enough to make a huge impact. A $3 million grant from the Bush Foundation will support and expand affordable housing in Rapid City.
