Think about how connecting to the Web has changed the way you live and work and the way you interact with the rest of the world. Now imagine that you've never had a good internet connection, that you're still stuck in the dial-up era, waiting five minutes for an e-mail to download. That's the case for nearly 40 percent of people living in rural america. How is the digital divide affecting them, and our economy?

Michael Symon checks in about an event that brings together the two major economic drivers for the region:  food and world-class healthcare. 

Plus, a new event looks to commemorate the infamous burning of the Cuyahoga River and leverage that event to our advantage.

Guests: 

Stu Johnson, Executive Director, Connect Ohio, VP Connected Nation 
Casey Kozlowski, Ashtabula County Commissioner
Michael Symon, Host, Five Star Sensation, Cleveland Restauranteur, Celebrity Chef
Joe Crea, Food Writer   
Jim Ridge, Share the River
