On this week's podcast we're getting physical, with lots of stories about the dangers of a sedentary life. Whether you are suffering from knee pain like our colleague Richard Knox, or just feel weary after a day sitting at your desk, the solution might be to get moving.

We'll hear a story of some folks who have taken this advice to heart; they've installed "treadmill desks" at work.

Plus, we'll discuss child nutrition. Schools in L.A. are getting rid of flavored milk, thanks to the efforts of celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, and soon, many schools might find it easier to get produce from their neighbors to put into their school lunches. Meanwhile, the Obama administration wants to curb marketing of sugary foods to children — but the response by some to the guidelines hasn't been all that sweet.
