    There is mounting evidence that high usage of modern-day electronic devices can have negative health effects and may alter brain development for children. Internal Medicine Physician Dr. Bosworth joins the show to give her take on the potential dangers of these highly stimulating gadgets and some of the strategies parents can employ to address these concerns.

    As details continue to emerge about the Maria Butina case, new questions are being raised about her treatment in custody. Government and Media Relations Specialist Jim Jatras returns to Fault Lines to discuss Butina's situation and the likelihood that she will return to Russia in the near future.

    Trump's proposed withdrawal from Syria has been met with great opposition from many in the DC political class. Peter Ford, a former ambassador from the UK to Syria, joins Garland and Lee to discuss Trump's decision and how the public should be interpreting this move as of now.

    For the final segment, the hosts are joined by Ryan Cristián, founder and editor of The Last American Vagabond, to discuss both the recently passed farm bill and the Flint Water Crisis. What were some of the buried details in the Farm Bill, and how has news coverage of the situation in Flint been indicative of what is wrong with the mainstream media?
