About the Show

Pittsburgh is the nation's surprising comeback city.  From its industrial past, Pittsburgh has become a city of Eds and Meds, with an unexpected focus on the environment.  My guests today are part of the green transformation underway in Pittsburgh.   

Scott Bricker runs  Bike Pittsburgh,  an organization committed to making Pittsburgh's streets increasingly safe and accessible for cyclists.

Erik Lingren
and Sean Brady run Venture Outdoors, an organization promoting outdoor recreation in Pittsburgh.  Their work is a model for urban environmentalism and is at the heart of the strategy to make Pittsburgh "buzz-worthy."
