Part One

Heart Transplant Race
Two years after receiving a transplant, a 55-year-old Ontario man runs his first-ever 10K race — as a tribute to the 22-year-old donor who gave him his heart. 

Climate Change Denier Plaza
Our guest offers a pointed reminder about the billionaire whose name graces part of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art  -- by changing "David H. Koch Plaza" to "Climate Change Denier Plaza."
