About the Show

In Cincinnati, a clumsily written ballot measure would effectively strangle any rail project in the city and my guest Joe Sprengard is fighting to strike it down.  We'll talk with Joe about forming Cincinnatians for Progress and how he built a political movement in that city.

And we'll revisit my conversation with Alex Steffen.  Alex is a journalist and author who runs the organization .   The site practices what he calls "Solutions based journalism" on the environment and has become the go-to source for forward thinking solutions on climate change and sustainability.  Alex joins us to tell us about this new vision for journalism and how to build a brighter future.
