Mayor Peduto

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto makes his monthly appearance on the program. We'll discuss the new 'Safer Together' initiative that the mayor hopes will increase public safety and improve community-police relations, raising the minimum wage and ways to make downtown more livable.

WESA Celebrates Inventing Pittsburgh

The "Cloud Factory" is the whimsical name for Oakland's Bellefield Boiler Plant. An unsung giant of the utility world, the BBP keeps most of Oakland toasty and has since 1907. Margaret J. Krauss has the story.

Addiction in the Workplace

How do you address the growing trend of addiction in the workplace? How does it impact employers and co-workers? We’ll pose those questions to Rosa Davis, executive director of POWER, a Pittsburgh-based organization helping women in recovery.
