We start off the New Year talking to the author of "Badass: A Relentless Onslaught of the Toughest Warlords, Vikings, Samurai, Pirates, Gunfighters, and Military Commanders to Ever Live." We find out why people are paying real money for virtual goods, and hear about a musical team-up between the rock band Kansas and Western Illinois University's Symphony Orchestra. We'll have those stories and more, this time on Sidetrack.
