On today’s program: The number of kids in foster care has increased as the opioid epidemic grows; Pittsburgh has a half-hidden fountain of youth; FBI documents could cast a shadow on the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.; peregrine falcons have found a home at the Rachel Carson state office building in Harrisburg; and Pittsburgh is getting more than 90 beers to honor each of its official and unofficial neighborhoods.

This week, 90.5 WESA’s Sarah Kovash, Josh Raulerson of the Pennsylvania Environmental Council and Rachel Carlson of Yelp Pittsburgh travel to East End Brewing’s new tap room in the Strip District.

While sipping on some brews, owner Scott Smith talks about all the work that goes into his carefully crafted beers and the delights of being in the Strip District (hello Gaucho takeout!)
