Food and Fabric, Poetry and Polyester

On today’s show: New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn gives us an update on the City’s efforts to improve the quality of its food system. Pulitzer Prize winning poet Rita Dove describes putting together the Penguin Anthology of Twentieth Century American Poetry. We’ll take a peek at a new exhibit of the Dead Sea Scrolls—including the Ten Commandments Scroll—currently on display at Discovery Times Square. Plus, Please Explain is all about polyester and other synthetics!
