Max Armstrong looks at cold weather, teens and highway dangers, a wheat market opportunity and an interesting new job opportunity

Max Armstrong looks at some cold weather records set in Minnesota, and notes that there's more to come. Max looks at a case in Toledo, Ohio, where teens have been charged for killing a person by dropping a construction sandbag from an overpass; a similar case is being tried in Flint, Mich. From This Week in Agribusiness, Max looks ahead at the next wheat crop, which may see an acreage drop but there's potential for high-quality wheat. And Max offers a look at one interesting job opportunity - watching objectionable content posted to social media sites to keep those sites clean.

Midwest Digest is a twice-daily audio feature produced by Max Armstrong, offering news and commentary from across the Midwest.
