What to look for on Smart Talk Friday, June 29, 2018:

The Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New England Patriots 41-33 in one of the most exciting Super Bowls in NFL history last February.  The Eagles hadn't won a championship since 1960 and were underdogs entering the playoffs after starting quarterback Carson Wentz suffered a season-ending injury.  But in stepped back-up and former starter Nick Foles, who played a game for the ages and was named the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player.

Foles will be in Harrisburg Friday afternoon and he joins us on Smart Talk to discuss his just released book  Believe It: My Journey of Success, Failure, and Overcoming the Odds.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement earlier this week effective at the end of July.  So what does this mean for the court and the nation moving forward?

Many Pennsylvanians stood up and noticed in the last few weeks with more attention focused on the poison hemlock plant.  With good reason, the plant is poisonous to humans and can actually cause blindness.
