We'll get a little wild and go theme-free with a show we're calling "wild cards." We'll hear why residents of Ocean City, Maryland have been rattled by a recent spike in crime. We'll meet a woman going on a year-long "clothes diet." And we'll find out what happens when aliens from outer space become D.C. tour guides.


[Music: "Every Little Bit Hurts" by John Davis from Title Tracks / "Young Wild & Free (Originally performed by Snoop Dog & Wiz Khalifa feat. Bruno Mars)" by Karaoke All Hits from Young Wild & Free (Originally performed by Snoop Dog & Wiz Khalifa feat. Bruno Mars)]
