Millennials Take Over as Biggest Generation

Millennials Take Over as Biggest Generation July 10, 2014

For the first time since the late 1940s, Baby Boomers are not the biggest generation. Millennials have stolen that crown. The shift happened somewhere near 2012, so it’s no coincidence that 2012 was the first year since 1976 that Baby Boomer voters picked the losing candidate in a presidential election. Boomers and Millennials differ in many ways, and those differences are changing America.

Cleveland Wins GOP Convention

Cleveland Wins GOP Convention July 9, 2014

The Republican National Committee has announced what some consider an unconventional choice for its 2016 presidential nominating convention: Cleveland. How, exactly, did Cleveland beat out Cincinnati, Columbus, Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Phoenix and, finally, Dallas? We'll find out Wednesday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas. We'll also look at logistics, local costs and the benefits and potential hassles, too, that the convention might bring. Join host Mike McIntyre.

Place Not Race for Affirmative Action

Place Not Race for Affirmative Action July 8, 2014

Affirmative action based on race is widely used for college admissions. But Georgetown University law professor Sheryll Cashin argues that perhaps that's an outdated model, and suggests that instead, affirmative action should be based on geographic location. That's her argument in her new book, "Place not Race." But not everyone agrees race based affirmative action is outdated, and some say it's still very much necessary.

Towpath Trail Tales

Towpath Trail Tales July 7, 2014

Cleveland's Flats has long been an industrial zone and an entertainment district. Residences have risen there now, too, and office buildings. And as of next week, a 9-acre park and trail on the once forlorn Scranton Peninsula. Monday at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas we'll talk about how the Scranton Flats project came to be, how it fits into the region's park infrastructure and its role in furthering the Towpath Trail along the course of the Ohio and Erie Canal. Join host Mike McIntyre.

Politics Takes a Holiday

Politics Takes a Holiday July 4, 2014

The Capitol Steps addresses timely issues set to show tunes! There's John Kerry singing "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Crimea?" and Hillary Clinton admonishing Joe Biden to "Let It Go" when it comes to running for President. It's a show so clogged with jokes that Chris Christie threatened to shut it down! Join the fun and try to forget you voted for some of these people. The Sound of Ideas returns on Monday.
