Crain's Forty Under 40; World War One; Points of Light; Blockchain Investment

Featured Audio

Last month marked 100 years since the end of World War One. Among its impacts - that war helped spur the creation of the Cleveland Clinic, and also established Cleveland as an economic powerhouse. What impact does the war have a century later? We delve into the history and impact of the war with two World War One experts: a professor from Case Western Reserve University and a visiting professor from Dublin. 

We also meet three of this year's class of Crain's Forty Under 40. 

Then, we hear about President George H.W. Bush's Points of Light Foundation and how people in Ohio can get involved.

Finally, a conversation with a local entrepreneur who's all in on Blockchain.
