This episode of Flash Talks Cash is all about student loan debt. Tune in to hear JoAnn "Flash" Fleming and Andrew Newman talk about the proposed Student Loan Forgiveness Act, which would cap payment amounts at 10 percent of a borrower's discretionary income, and can provide forgiveness after 10 years. Hear Flash and Andrew's varying opinions on the issue. Should prospective students take debt into more consideration when choosing a school, or does the whole system need some adjustment? Flash and Andrew also talk about the new use of gold and silver coins as alternative currency in Utah, as well as the way to choose what credit card is best for you. This episode has been brought to you by Heritage Foods USA.

"It affects their future- their ability to go into a business, their ability to start families, their ability to buy homes. All of this is just stalling the economy some more. They have to start dealing with the actual amount of tuition and debt that people are taking on." --JoAnn "Flash" Fleming on Flash Talks Cash

Katy Keiffer has a deep discussion about slaughterhouses and transparency with the author of "Every Twelve Seconds: Industrialized Slaughter and the Politics of Sight", Timothy Pachirat. How do people deal with the routine slaughter of animals? How can we successfully compute and understand the practice of animal processing on a human and emotional level? Tune in and get an insiders perspective on transparency, morality and the many implications of eating meat. Carnivores and vegetarians alike can learn something new from this show. This program was sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons.

"I do think there is something significant to the act of taking life...What happens to the way we think about these practices if we begin to collapse some of the distances that shield us from having to confront the realities that they demand?"

"What I really want to get across is that there's absolutely something that happens in the act of taking another life. The current industrialized meat model allows people to eat meat without confronting that something. I believe that is deeply problematic."

--Author Timothy Pachirat on Straight, No Chaser
