Al Gobeille is the chairman of the Green Mountain Care Board.

In December, Governor Peter Shumlin decided that the numbers just didn't add up to continue pursuit of the single-payer health care system. But that didn't end the work of the Green Mountain Care Board, which was created by the Legislature in 2011

Green Mountain Care Board Chairman Al Gobeille discusses what the board has achieved thus far and what their goals are regarding health care reform.

Also on the program, the Fram was an incredible ship that made exploratory voyages to the Canadian Arctic and Antarctica. Author Charles Johnson relates tales of these trips from his new book, "Ice Ship: The Epic Voyages of the Polar Adventurer Fram."
