Ali and John discuss Timothy Kurek, a Christian man who wanted to understand the prejudices that come along with being homosexual by going on a "spiritual espionage journey" and living the life of a fake gay man for a year. He's in the process of writing a book about his experiences that's set to be released on National Coming Out Day. He was inspired to do this experiment after his lesbian friend came out to him.

Ali and John discuss the couple from Hong Kong who allegedly paid $2 million for a man to coach their two sons to get them into Harvard - and the kids didn't get in. Now the couple is suing the man, who claimed to be a former Harvard professor but was actually just an assistant professor who had lost ties with Harvard back in 2005. If the two sons had gotten into the university, what would that say for the education system?

Ali and John discuss how to talk to your kids about the presidential election. Children aren't really following the election but are learning about it through little bits and pieces they hear on the news or from their parents. With all of the mudslinging and name-calling going on, this can cause a problem for parents who work so hard to teach their kids not to behave that way.
How do you explain political mudslinging to your kids? Tell us in the comments!
More can't-miss moments: Ali talks people who take advantage of wheelchairs at airports to bypass long lines and zip through security, a man who checked himself into an animal shelter to raise awareness of just how many dogs are abandoned every year, and "Hop," the new blue tooth-enabled, remote-controlled suitcase that follows you via your iPhone.
