Where We Work

Where We Work January 22, 2015

The average American spends more time at work than on any other activity. But the work space doesn't meet everyone's needs. There was a time when the open office was all the rage, as advocates argued breaking down the walls builds up creativity.

State of the Union 2015

State of the Union 2015 January 21, 2015

President Obama wants community college to be tuition-free. He also wants to increase capital gains taxes and increase sick time for workers, among other proposals. Much of what he'll suggest in his State of the Union Address tonight isn't likely to make it through the Congress.

Teens at a City Club of Cleveland Youth Forum last week spoke powerfully about racism. The YWCA of Greater Cleveland is preparing to host a forum on race while Cleveland City Council wraps up a listening tour focused on police use of force. And the governor's task force on community-police relations holds its first hearing on January 20th. What's everyone talking about, who's listening, and will it lead to action?

We'll spend the hour on The Sound of Ideas discussing his legacy and remembering his visits to Cleveland in 1967 a year after the Hough riots. We'll also visit with two authors who have unique insights into King's life and his legacy. Join host Mike McIntyre
