Thursday and Friday – Join us for pop-up radio live from a downtown Hartford storefront! We’ll broadcast both Where We Live and the Colin McEnroe Show live from 90 State House Square, in a former bank space. Drop in and join our live audience!
MONDAY: Electric Cars
By now, you’d think everyone would be driving around in electric cars, plugging in at night and enjoying a quiet – emissions-free – ride to work. But the emergence of the electric car hasn’t been so easy. They’re still expensive, and the network to power them still hasn’t been figured out. We’ll get an update – plug in to the next where we live.
TUESDAY: What is the “Middle Class?”(rebroadcast)
This election season, we’ve heard plenty of candidates talk about how they want to help the middle class. So who are they talking about? Coming up, we’ll talk with Yale’s Jacob Hacker and sociologist Dennis Gilbert about what politicians mean when they say “middle class.” Gilbert says candidates’ use of this term is “dishonest.” A new Pew study says “the middle class has shrunk in size and fallen backward in wealth.” We’ll look at the wide, varying and sometimes manipulative definition of the middle class.
WEDNESDAY: Where We Vote: Elizabeth Esty
Elizabeth Esty won a three-way race in the Democratic primary for the 5th Congressional District seat. Now that the embattled House Speaker Chris Donovan dropped his possible bid for the seat with the Working Families Party, she’s running one-on-one against Republican Andrew Roraback. We’re about a month-and-a-half away from the general election, the political ads are filling the airwaves and Esty is back in our studios for Where We Vote.
THURSDAY: Pop-up Radio! CT History, 19th Century
What do you know about Connecticut history from the 1800s?How about how things looked downtown? What was the scene on Front Street, or along Main Street? Coming up, we’ll explore some of this history, and talk about a new exhibit on the Emancipation Proclamation, which is celebrating it’s 150th anniversary year.
FRIDAY: Pop-up Radio! Envisionfest, iQuilt, Hartford’s Happenin’!
Another live show from our pop-up radio location in downtown Hartford. Today we’ll be previewing the upcoming Envisionfest, and talking about plans to make Hartford a walkable city with iQuilt.
