World Footprints is excited to share one of our new favorite cities --Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (despite our football rivalries). When most people who have never visited Pittsburgh think of the city, they may envision an industrial city filled with tall smoke stakes. In reality, Pittsburgh is a vibrant, colorful, modern and pristine city that is very welcoming. The three rivers that meet at a point creates a flowing calming energy and provided the inspiration for Dutch artist Florentjn Hofman to select the city as her North American debut of his giant rubber duck. Today, we will give you a glimpse into this remarkable city as we explore Pittsburgh's rich history through attractions like the Senator John Heinz History Center, we'll walk through the streets of The Hill District and we'll relive Pittsburgh's industrial past as we tour the Carrie Blast Furnaces.
With the NFL preseason and regular season on deck, it is time to kick off the NFL "SuperFan" series 2015-style! Tonight I will preview the Pittsburgh Steelers' upcoming season with Steelers' fan Jason Haas.
Topics to be covered include:
What went wrong with the 2014 Steelers?
Thoughts on the Steelers' draft?
What in the hell went wrong with Pittsburgh's D season?
How will the Steelers fare in 2015?
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is much more than a gray, smokey steel town. It is a vibrant and colorful city filled with rich history, culture and culinary goodies. The three rivers that meet at a point creates a flowing calming energy and provided the inspiration for Dutch artist Florentjn Hofman to select the city as her North American debut of his giant rubber duck. Today, we will give you a glimpse into this remarkable city as we explore Pittsburgh's rich history through attractions like the Senator John Heinz History Center, we'll walk through the streets of The Hill District and we'll relive Pittsburgh's industrial past as we tour the Carrie Blast Furnaces.
When the Delta Foundation announced their headliner entertainer wass Iggy Azalea, many in the Western PA area were outraged and many LGBTQ persons of color felt especially alienated from Pittsburgh Pride. However, the selection of Azalea was just the last in a long list of incidents which leave many feeling as if the Delta Foundation doesn't care about the local LGBTQ community, but rather organizes Pride for white cis males alone. From the outrage came the organization of Roots Pride Pittsburgh.
My guest for this episode is Joy KMT, one of the co-organizers for the protest against Delta and the organizing effort to form Roots Pride Pittsburgh. We will talk about the Iggy controversy, and how a grassroots oriented Pride will serve Western PA's LGBTQAI com munity.
Here are some links for more about Roots Pride Pittsburgh:

The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview a favorite Pittsburgh Steeler, Ernie Mills.
Ernie Mills comes to the Rattler squad as the receivers’ coach. Mills was a standout receiver for the Florida Gators before being drafted in 1991 to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He played in Pittsburgh with Holmes until 1996. In 1997 he played one season with the Carolina Panthers, before playing with the Dallas Cowboys in 1998 and 1999.
Ernie Mills led the Gators in receiving touchdowns with 10 in 1990. That season he also garnered 770 yards receiving. He was a first-team All-SEC selection with the 9-2 Gators in 1990, playing under both Galen Hall and Steve Spurrier in his time at the University of Florida.
Ernie helped the Steelers get a birth in Super Bowl XXX with 39 catches for 679 yards while scoring eight touchdowns on the season. Mills spent nine years in the NFL. He finished his career with 196 receptions, 20 touchdowns and 2,934 yards. Mills is still regarded as one of the toughest receivers to ever play professional football. His versatility as a blocker was often compared to the resolve of the area’s reputation for blue collar steel workers. Also a return man in the NFL, Mills gained and amazing 1,818 yards on 80 kickoff returns.
