First, Obama’s tax-cut deal, then internet dating


Hour 2

Marty starts this hour with a 20-minute interview with WHYY’s National Interest blogger DICK POLMAN about the tax-cut deal struck by President Obama and Republicans in Congress. Then, in the last two-thirds of the show:  Internet dating sites have come a long way since was launched 15 years ago.  It’s now estimated that 1 in 5 single adults have dated someone they met online.  We’ll go inside the world of internet dating with Rutgers communications professor Jennifer Gibbs who studies internet dating and the way we communicate on line and Ellen McCarthy who writes about relationships for the Washington Post.
