Episode Description 
The New England Journal of Medicine is out with a new analysis of people with health insurance because of the Affordable Care Act. The number: 20 million. We dig into it and look at the folks who bought health coverage directly from insurers. Who are these 5 million people? Also, one in five people in their 20s and 30s is living with their parents, up from one in 10 a generation ago. We talk to Chris Farrell about the pluses and minuses of multigenerational households. And after, we talk to Mitchell Hartman about older workers, 55 and up, who are working for much longer before retiring than their parents did. What does this mean to the workforce as a whole?
