On Air Today

Posted on July 30, 2010. Filed under: Commentaries | Tags: , , , , , , |

My next Metro Connection commentary airs today.  Looks like I am back in that prime – best for last – time slot again, around 1:50PM.

A little preview here, the commentary is about “real” food, vs. what most of us eat.  My favorite part of researching this, which didn’t make it into the commentary, was when I found a statement, (I think on the USDA website – but don’t quote me there), saying that if frozen pizza companies use the term “real cheese” on their packaging, they have to have at least 2% actual cheese in their cheese product to make that claim.  I love it.  You can say it’s real if it’s 2% actual product.  And the cheese lobby had to fight for that!

As usual, you can find my commentary on the web at:  www.wamu.org/programs/mc

Life’s Little Traffic Jam on WAMU

Posted on July 9, 2010. Filed under: Commentaries | Tags: , , , , , |

My commentary has been officially “archived.”  It’s not a bad thing.  Every show on WAMU gets archived and that way it will live on long after I am gone – cause the internet is permanent!

If you didn’t get to hear me live on 88.5FM in DC, click the link to listen to  my commentary Life’s Little Traffic Jams.
