Our Amish Neighbors The Amish with large populations in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Indiana, cling to 300-year-old religious traditions as they resist many of the conveniences that define modern society. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll go beyond what most of us know, the beards and the buggies, to learn about the culture and the future of our Amish neighbors in Northeast Ohio. Join us, Monday at 9:00 on 90.3.


Arts and Culture, History, Community/Human Interest, Ethics/Religion


Callie T. Wiser, producer, The Amish
Steven Nolt, historian, Goshen College
