Executive Bonuses AIG, which has received more than $170 billion in federal bailout money from the Treasury and Federal Reserve, recently gave $165 million in bonuses to executives in the same business unit that brought the company to the brink of collapse last year. The firm's lawyers say AIG was obligated to pay the bonuses, and were needed to keep “best and the brightest talent” at AIG. Guests: Kartik Raman, Bentley Universiy; Oliver Hart, Harvard University

Gardner Heist The Gardner Heist looks at the infamous art theft that remains unsolved almost two decades after it first took place. In 2005, reporter Ulrich Boser interviewed art detective Harold Smith who was determined to solve the case. Guests: Ulrich Boser, Author, The Gardner Heist; Tom Mashberg, Boston Herald Sunday Editor

The survey asked 200 Boston youth between the ages of 12 and 19 about teen dating violence, and found that 46 % thought Rihanna was responsible. Guests: Casey Corcoran, Start Strong Initiative, Boston Public Health Commission; Dr. Myechia Minter-Jordan, Chief Medical Officer, The Dimock Center
