Tonight, we take a look at the food industry by dumpster diving. What can we learn about our commercial relationship with food by looking at what's thrown out? Then, how much of life's meaning is derived from our mortality? How do our obligations and projects keep us safe and moving forward? When do they distract us from more important ways to spend our time? Finally, longtime sound effects man for "A Prairie Home Companion," Tom Keith, died unexpectedly in October. Katy Sewall brings us an intimate one–on–one interview with him.
