* Cyborg eyes and USB fingers Sanden looks into the trend of people hacking their own prosthetics to create new cyborg technologies. Think of it as human bodies, upgraded.

* Swine Flu: The Musical We hear about what the doctor can do if you feel a case of swine fl. . ., excuse me H1N1 influenza coming on. And yes, Jeff sings like he's hoping for a Tony.

* Reasons why (or why not) to quit your day job in a recession We talk to Wall Street Journal small business reporter Kelly Spors and author, entrepreneur and job quitting guru Ernie Zelinski about the prospects for making it on your own in this recession.

Plus some music from the Smarts, Jeff's latest public service announcement and a fresh off the press "news poem" from the prolific Craig Kenworthy.
