On the premiere episode of Stawberry FLAG Radio, host Cinny Kennard and FLAG supervisor Rich Nielson walk us through the process of building a working hydroponic strawberry field in the form of an American flag on the campus of the Los Angeles Veterans Affairs.

Joining us for "Pie Talk" is 10 year Navy veteran Konita Wilks, who served in OEF and OIF during "Shock & Awe." We also talk to Glora Janeck, a veterans widow who donated hundreds of jars to store the strawberry preserves. Finally, composer William Basinski describes the music he created to help the strawberries grow by.

Artist Lauren Bon and the Metabolic Studio team are working on this piece with both veterans and professionals at the hospital. It is dedicated to the men and women in service to our country. The Metabolic Studio, a direct charitable activity of the Annenberg Foundation, funds Strawberry Flag.
