Election Results

WESA Celebrates - Annie Yonas and Griffin Kerstetter

An inability to spell homeless resulted in the naming of the Home Lost project. An initiative begun by Annie Yonas and Griffin Kerstetter as a means of helping the homeless stay warm in the winter. Their efforts are profiled in this week’s WESA Celebrates.

Future of the Global Economy

Is there a connection between yesterday's national elections and globalization? We'll pose that question to Dr. Michael Mandelbaum, professor of American Foreign Policy at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies.
