College campuses are in an uproar over....well, something.

What started out as a series of protests against perceived racial slights at the University of Missouri and perceived intolerance at Yale University have turned into full-scale media storms -- and now the protesting college students say they didn't even want the media's attention in the first place, even though they are, you know, protesting in public.

But that's not even the most head-scratching story that involves a college campus this week.  Would you believe that former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky is going to get to keep receiving a state pension while serving a life sentence for sexually abusing young boys?

Matt Kittle and Eric Boehm take a look at those big stories and everything else making headlines this week.

Then, Watchdog investigative reporter Tori Richards stops by to talk about her latest expose on the EPA, which reveals the agency is pushing for clean air policies that even many national parks cannot meet.  More than a dozen national parks failed the new standards, but cities and businesses are going to have to spend millions of dollars to meet the tougher regs.

All that, plus our Nanny State of the Week and our Picks Of The Liter on this edition of the Watchdog Podcast.
