Did you know more than one in seven people have a substance abuse problem?  We’ll revisit Shawn’s segment with an addictions professional and learn about the challenges in treating those with drug addictions. The thought of catching an alligator doesn’t appeal to most people – especially women.  We’ll take you back to the river where Alecsa met up with a woman who loves the thrill and excitement involved in her job of trapping nuisance gators.

We’re going to start the show with our new host, Helena. She’ll meet an award winning pet groomer and learn how she transforms dirty dogs into beautifully groomed pooches.  Then we’re going to get to know Helena as she sits down to chat with Shawn for a few minutes.  I think you’ll love her as much as we do!
