The Marc Steiner Show

February 21, 2011 – Segment 2

  1. Dear Mark,

    For some reason I was not on my usual dial (WYPR) during evening commute, but on WEAA when your show was been broadcast.

    Sugar Changed the World is really thought provoking and I am going to buy the book. Thanks very much.
