Oh the weather outside is frightful, but our stories this week are delightful. And if you've no place to go, grab some cocoa, have a seat and join our show!

Old Man Winter tossed a few flakes our way this week, so even though winter hasn't quite arrived in the region, this week we're going "Out in the Cold." We meet NASA scientists working on a telescope chilled to nearly -400 degrees, and dive in to the debate over shelter for homeless women in D.C. Plus, we preview a world-premiere musical based on the classic children's book, The Snowy Day.
