A ceiling can mean so many things — shelter, an old way of doing business or even a glass one, to shatter. On this weekend's show, a look at the deep economic divides in Baltimore. Plus, an injured Iraq war veteran discusses his home remodel, and we learn about the principle of Universal Design. Also, take an out-of-this-world trip with astronaut Chris Hadfield, who talks about what it's like to push through Earth's ceiling. We discuss challenging the ceilings inside us, and find that some ceilings we thought were there, might not exist anymore.
