  • This year’s primary elections in North Carolina were supposed to be in March. But a group of voters challenged the latest round of redistricting in court, arguing Republicans gave themselves an illegal partisan advantage. Now the new maps are in place, and the elections are set. They just need candidates.
  • While early voting turnout was up, primary participation among younger voters is lagging. Is there anything that candidates could do differently? Meanwhile the Governor has unveiled his budget proposal and a major question again lingers – is this the year Medicaid expands in North Carolina? Donna Kina of the Carolina Journal and Rob Schofield from NC Policy Watch review some of the week’s political news.
  • An illustration of a person with long hair getting a foot massage with an empty wheelchair in the background. The text "Fated" is in the middle of the top of the image.

    Anita knows there's no way she can prepare herself or her loved ones for the ways a terminal illness can alter their lives. But meeting people with incurable conditions, and their loved ones, helps her understand what is possible when time suddenly becomes limited. A couple navigating a terminal ALS diagnosis share their story and how their definition of intimacy has evolved. Plus, a woman in her 20s talks about building a dating profile and keeping her sense of humor when her life expectancy is unknown.
  • Anita's clocked hundreds of hours in therapy, and she's a fan. But there's a part of the profession she hasn't tapped yet: sex therapy. This kind of counseling is designed to support couples — and individuals — through challenges with their bodies and in the bedroom. Some experts join her to share how it can help people reconnect, plus she tests a smartphone app that helps folks broach uncomfortable sexual conversations.
