11.22.2010 | Hello Wello


We’re joined in the studio by Cynthia Koenig of Wello, a social venture com­mitted to bringing safe, potable water to the people who need it most.  Guest co-​​host Emily Plews helps us figure out why grat­i­tude is so healthy and whykeeping your mind from wan­dering keeps you happier.  Plus a call-​​in from Gina, mystery tunes from DJ Local, a full season of food politics, and an all-​​around feel-​​good time — take a listen, why don’t you?

11.08.2010 | Get Fermented with the Brinery


Global economic meltdown got you down? Then listen in and let David Klingenberger CFO (Chief Fermentation Officer) of Ann Arbor’s own The Brinery stim­u­late your inner economy.

After an exxxtraspe­cial call-​​in from from America’s Next Top Political Pundit (and hope­fully IHIH’s newest polit­ical cor­re­spon­dent) Colin Warren, we crunch on turnips, groove on some veggie-​​themed jams and talk fer­men­ta­tion, local produce, and local business with David — a man who loves pickles even more than we do.

Is all this talk of fla­vorful, crunchy, organic, local pickled veg­eta­bles making your mouth water? Then be sure to check out The Brinery @ the Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market Wednesdays and Saturdays. Your guts will thank you.

11.01.2010 | Election Edition


Failure to vote is not a protest, it’s just lazy.

Tune in to get a sense of the mood in DC — hear from the Michigan League of Conservation Voters on who’s greenest on your ballot — from Emily/​Judy about the role of business in sus­tain­ability and from who we hope will be America’s next top polit­ical pundit Colin Warren.

Voting is sexy.
