Contributor Matt Ruby speaks with Amy Bennett about what it takes to provide locally sourced food and goods, based on her experience with The Greene Grape, the company she founded and runs which has four shops in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. We’re also joined by Jacqueline Soller to discuss the recently released movie, The Rider, directed by Chloe Zhao. Along the way, we’ll also hear from Radio Dispatch’s John Knefel with his take on how President Trump should respond to Syria’s chemical attacks on its own people; we’ll hear from a woman named Gianna about her relationship with her sister; and we’ll hear a song from a recent BTR Live Studio session featuring Alice Boman, a singer-songwriter from Sweden.

Music composed by and show edited by Hansdale Hsu.
