Depression: Signs and Treatment, Actor John Schneider’s new movie studio in Louisiana, Journey of the Dance

Depression: Signs and Treatment (05:03) The shocking death of actor and comedian Robin Williams has brought the serious disease of depression to the forefront. This week we will talk about what it really is and isn’t and how we can all become more sensitive to the warning signs. SHARE

Actor John Schneider’s new movie studio in Louisiana (13:00) From the Dukes of Hazzard to Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman to Tyler Perry’s The Haves and Have Nots, actor and filmmaker John Schneider has traded the Hills of Hollywood for the bayous of Louisiana. Thanks to the film tax credits and the state’s beautiful scenery he is creating a haven for independent filmmakers. Shauna Sanford will have his story this week. SHARE

Journey of the Dance (20:12) Enjoy and learn two classic dance forms, flamenco from southern Spain and kathak of northern India that were showcased recently in Louisiana.
