Call in to speak with the host


This week we're inspired by Woody Guthrie's "Pastures of Plenty." The 1941 ballad describes a land full of promise, but poses questions about equal access to that wealth.

We'll hear from urban fishermen casting their lines into the waters of the East River. Our City in Demand series looks at veterans jockeying for the best vending spots in New York City, and we check in on local fundraising efforts for The Philippines after the devastating typhoon. 

Eastbound Jesus joins us for a live set in the studio and Joe and Lauren Grimm of Grimm Ales drop by for a live Q+A.
