1/11/2014 - BLOOD - From medicine to the movies, the horrifying to the holy, and history to the present day  -- we consider the power and magic of the red liquid that runs through our veins.  We meet an artist who opened his veins and got labeled a terrorist, douse ourselves in the meat and metaphors of blood in Shakespeare, wonder if clues to a gory fountain of youth could be lurking in the red blood cells of mice, and trace the complicated supply chain that gets blood from arms to operating tables.
