For years, Cleveland has failed to prevent lead poisoning in its children. Now comes a new push from City Councilman Blaine Griffin, who promises comprehensive legislation by year's end. Griffin joins The Sound of Ideas to talk about how he believes this plan will succeed where others have failed. Later, why you may be doing recycling wrong.  And a conversation with Maureen Dowd on politics in the Trump era.
