What a way to end the week… It was a busy show tonight. So click on the player above, and here’s what you’ll hear:
Since today is Earth Day, we started the show with a conversation with Jeff Regen, VP of Online Communications for Defenders of Wildlife.

Have a great weekend, and I’ll be back with a new show Monday — 6-8pm ET.
