Our theme this week is "Turning Points," as we look at the moments in life that can lead to big changes. We'll talk with a Montgomery County man about his struggle with schizophrenia. We'll visit a beer garden started by two guys who chose to jump off the corporate career ladder. Plus, we'll hear from a scientist unraveling the mysteries of oysters in the Chesapeake Bay. And we'll talk with the folks working to save a historic D.C. mural.
