10thirtysix host Portia Young sits down with Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome Listecki as he announces his retirement. We'll hear about his major accomplishments, challenges and possible regrets and about the future of the Catholic Church.

We will also have an important update about Milwaukee Soldiers Home. Our recent documentary "A Hallowed Home for Heroes" hinted at the restoration of three more buildings within the nationally historic district. Now we know when this will indeed happen.

We continue our series, "How We Heal" with the story of David Bear and how he coped with his wife's suicide. 

March is Women's History Month, so producer Alexandria Mack looks the success of Milwaukee's  PEARLS for Teen Girls, a non-profit that started in 1993 to help support 5th through 12th graders.
