First hour: How law enforcement analyzes alleged terror threats

Second hour: Second Opinion Live! - Let's Get Physical

On New Year's Eve, law enforcement announced the arrest of Emanuel Lutchman, who was allegedly inspired by ISIS to carry out an attack in Rochester. Government has defended the arrest, saying it's evidence that investigators are keeping the public safe. Critics have wondered if there are mental health issues, and whether ISIS was actually involved.

Our guests will examine how law enforcement analyzes cases like this, and we'll also discuss the mental health component. In studio:

  • Mark Concordia, former FBI and counter terrorism instructor
  • Robert Weisman, D.O., associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Rochester School of Medicine

In our second hour, it's Second Opinion Live! We're focusing on how to determine which kinds of exercise are right for you. We'll discuss age, health conditions, and more. Our guests:

  • Krupa Shah, M.D., M.P.H., geriatrician at Highland Hospital
  • Michael Gavin, M.D., internal medicine/pediatrics physician with UR Medicine Primary Care
  • Elizabeth Wetmore, PT, DPT, CSCS, EP-C, a physical therapist and certified exercise physiologist with UR Orthopaedics/Sports Medicine
