July 14, 2009 – Hour 2

Ever dreamed of tearing up your lawn and growing some plants you can eat?  We’re joined by Scott Carlson, who did just that outside of his Rodgers Forge rowhouse, and Jon Traunfeld, the director of the Home and Garden Information Center at University of Maryland.  While you’re listening to our podcast, take a look at Scott’s article on this topic in Urbanite Magazine’s July issue.

Later in the hour, we’re joined by William David Cohan, author of House of Cards: A Tale of Huberous and Wretched Excess on Wall Street to discuss the op-ed he co-authored with Sandy Lewis "The Economy is Still on the Brink." Cohan worked on Wall Street for seventeen years and has some profound insights into the mechanics of Wall Street and what really needs to happen for lasting reform.
