The First Lady, Christ Branstad, and Gail Orcutt joined us this morning in the studio to talk about radon gas in Iowa.  Gail is a lung cancer survivor, never smoked, and wondered how she got lung cancer.  She read an article about radon gas in Iowa and how it causes lung cancer.  She had her home tested and it was way above acceptable levels.  Every home in Iowa should be tested.  It's easy to doo...order the kit by calling 1-800-383-5992 or go to  You can also stop by the American Lung Association at 2530 73rd Street in Des Moines and pick one up.  They are only $10.00 and could save your life!

Also joining us in the studio this morning, a new vendor in the Chocolate Breakfast...Scratch Cupcakery!  How new?  They are opening tomorrow in a strip mall just to the west of Jordan Creek Town Center.  Stop by and say "hi" to the store director, Emily Miles.  They make 125 different flavors of cupcakes!  They will be sampling several of their chocolate flavors at the Chocolate Breakfast on February 1st!  You can also check them out online at
