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.

 

Producer: Kristen Clark

Host: Natalie Abruzzo
