The Sound of Ideas
We Love Cars, But Not Buying Them
Henry Ford is credited with saying at one point during the production of the Model T: "Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black." Choices are much broader now. And car buying is much more complicated. Tuesday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about what's popular among local buyers, how to avoid purchasing potholes in our region and what to do if you hit one. We've got plenty of room; come along for the ride.
Reporters’ Roundtable 5/3
Republicans float a "Right to Work" balloon; but more powerful Republicans quickly shoot it down. School districts seek new taxes and tell voters not to bank on state money. Part-time faculty at the University of Akron say they're getting a bum deal. Another Northeast Ohio hospital targets smokers. And news that a "privatized" state agency prefers former government employees. All up for discussion on the reporters' roundtable Friday at 9 on 90.3
Take a Hike
Hey, Sound of Ideas listeners, take a hike! On second thought, that didn't come out quite right. We're not saying "take a hike" as in "get away from us." You guys are the best! We're saying "take a hike" as in, literally, "take a hike." In fact, if you're hiking at 9:00 a.m. Friday grab some headphones and take us with you. Whether it's through the streets of Cleveland, the trails of Akron or our in very own national park, we'll talk the walk. Lace em up and come along with host Mike...
The Second Act
Last week we spent an hour talking about how the world's population is aging.. Wednesday, we look at how we don't necessarily have to lose a step as we get older. Many seniors continue working -- some because of economic necessity and some for fulfillment. There are also opportunities to volunteer or go back to school. Getting old isn't the same old thing anymore. Join host Mike McIntyre Wednesday at 9 on 90.3.
Biotech, HIT and Big Data
Northeast Ohio's biomedical industry is growing. Companies that offer products and services are taking root, nurtured by hundreds of millions of investor dollars and help from hospitals and non-profits intent on turning ideas into industry. Health Information Technology is one of those industries with huge growth potential. Tuesday at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas, join host Mike McIntyre for a look at the trials and triumphs of fostering biomedical innovation in our region.
The Euclid Corridor Project
The long-planned Euclid Corridor Project, better known today as the Healthline, took shape five years ago along a four mile stretch of road that goes from Tower City to University Circle. Earlier this month the bus line was recognized as the best bus rapid transit system in America. Monday we'll look at why it’s working so well, and how it's spurred economic development in a place that sorely needs it. Join host Mike McIntyre Monday at 9 on 90.3.
