02/19/14 - Wednesday's Topical Currents examines an increase in hearing problems . . . particularly in those under the age of 55. Hearing loss is usually associated with the elderly, but statistics show an increasing number of young people put themselves at risk with overloud music, sports arenas, even sports bars and subways. We’ll speak with journalist and editor Katherine Bouton, author SHOUTING WON’T HELP: Why I – and 50-Million Other Americans Can’t Hear You. That’s Topical Currents . . . Wednesday at 1pm.
