December 1 means the countdown is on, and we're not talking about Christmas. With just two weeks left for open enrollment on the federal health care marketplace, our experts are back to help answer all your "how" questions. Then, a conversation about America's favorite meat. Health journalist Maryn McKenna gives us some insight into how and why modern agriculture has changed chicken consumption in the United States.

The open enrollment period for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act ends Friday, December 15. Go to HealthCare.gov to enroll. For help enrolling, go to CoverKC.org or called United Way 2-1-1. More information at WyCoHealth.com and HCFGKC.org.

I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
