Dan Polletta talks to filmmaker Jason Wise whose new documentary focuses on wine and the Master Sommelier Exam - SOMM - which screens this weekend. Plus we hear from retiring lawyer Oliver 'Pudge' Henkel who played a pivotal role in saving the PlayhouseSquare Theaters more than 40 years ago. And Dee Perry speaks with Cleveland Institute of Art instructors Kasumi and Matthew Hollern about life as artists living and working in Cleveland.
