Heat. Outside, it's making us sweat and making castelfranco and other greens bolt. Inside, in WNYC's Studio 4, the heat of the 60-Second Stir-Fry lightning round of hard-hitting questions is making Brooklyn Grange's Anastasia Cole Plakias and Ben Flanner nearly come to blows.
Walking down Vanderbilt Avenue in Brooklyn one weekend, I did a double take when I saw a little storefront selling mayonnaise. Just mayo? Does the condiment deserve such a spotlight?

Christopher Toole, the Bronx-based fish farmer who raises tilapia in plastic bins -- don't call them garbage cans! -- can talk a blue streak when it comes to urban farming and his vertically integrated farms.
