Drew Carey hosts four videos that challenge some commonly-held assumptions.

"Food Fight" investigates how licensing affects entrepreneurship on the streets of Los Angeles. In downtown LA, people are hungry for the local delicacy—bacon dogs. But selling them can land street vendors in jail. Take a trip with Drew Carey into the black market world of selling bacon dogs.

"Kidneys for Sale" tackles the controversial topic of organ donation. Each year in the U.S., thousands of people die while on the waiting list for a kidney. What if donors could be paid?

"Throw Pillow Fight" challenges a growing licensing movement in the field of interior design. Do decorating decisions affect the health, welfare, and safety of consumers? Can unlicensed interior designers put your life at risk?

Who benefits from "Agricultural Subsidies"? Some argue that agricultural subsidies are necessary to protect America's farmers and ensure a steady food supply. Critics say U.S. farm programs cost taxpayers billions each year, significantly raise the price of commodities, undermine world trade agreements, and contribute to the suffering of poor farmers around the world.

The segments presented in this video series are excellent starters for my debate class discussions.

My students and I thought this video was a tremendous wake up call to how government can run and be run. It generated many thoughts and questions to how an individual can make a change politically. It was a very good video!

This has been my favorite video and my students' favorite video. My students were discussing "Kidneys for Sale" for days after we watched and discussed this video. Students who never get excited about anything were very involved in this series. Thanks for the video.

The video promoted very strong emotional writing from my students last year and that is one of the hardest things for my special education kiddos to do.

This was a wonderful video for my students. The segment on Agricultural Subsidies was especially interesting as many of my students are from farming families. They were ready to discuss for days after watching this video. Thank you for your awesome additions to the classroom.
