AudioFiles: Quality of Life

Monday, October 20th, 2014

Our latest episode is all about living well, dying well – and the people trying to make things a little better for us along the way. We have stories about keeping the faith with spies in your midst, entrepreneurs fighting crime with coffee and a town that thinks we might all be better off with a bit of lithium in the water.

Newark Star-Ledger Jets beat reporter Dom Cosentino and Huffington Post writer Sarah Beauchamp talk feminism beyond the NFL scandal, and the band IndigeSoul joins us live with some ethnic global grooves.
