NYC Crashes Uber, Blocks Trump

Audio not available
New Yorkers know a thing or two about how to Trump-proof your hometown, as we’ve been doing for decades now. Shortly after Trump’s Muslim Ban came down, New York City’s cabbies took to the streets in a legion of anti-Trump resistance. Here’s some sounds from their rally at Uber headquarters earlier this month, protesting both Trump and CEO Travis Kalanick, who was appointed to Trump’s business advisory and later left under public pressure.

A hunger for ecological integrity brought Kristyn Leach, a Korean American who was adopted as an infant, back to the country of her birth, and then home again to Namu Farm in the San Francisco Bay Area. Built on about an acre of Alameda County's publicly supported urban farmland, her tiny farming venture has combined two cultures in a method of small-scale agriculture known as "natural farming." She discusses her approach to urban farming and how it’s helped her reconnect with her roots.
