What's Cookin' Wednesday
Segment A: Food of the Future
Guest host Barbara Hamm Lee is joined by our resident foodie Patrick Evans-Hylton for a discussion on 'Food of the Future'. There was a time when futurists thought we'd be getting our meals in the form of pills by now a la The Jetsons. So what IS the future of food? We'll talk with with Warren Belasco, Professor of American Studies at the University of Maryland Baltimore County and author of Meals to Come: A History of the Future of Food about how we have historically considered this question. We'll also talk with local chefs who are employing some 'futuristic' techniques in their kitchens. Join us!

Segment B: Buy Fresh, Buy Local
For many the 'food of the future' has deep roots in the past. The idea of eating locally grown and produced food has gained momentum and one group, Buy Fresh Buy Local Hampton Roads, aims to make finding local food a breeze. Today we'll talk with Scott Wilson of Full Quiver Farm and Jessica Greenblatt Seeley, the Deputy Director for the FoodRoutes Network which helps foster BFBL programs across the country.

Segment A: Bargains
For many, the economic downturn has meant cutting back on luxuries, but there are ways to save and indulge simultaneously. Today we talk with two experts on the matter, Jeff Yeager, who has been dubbed 'The Ultimate Cheapskate' and actress Annie Korzen who recently authored the book 'Bargain Junkie'. You'll want to tune in to hear their money saving tips!

Segment B: Keeping up with 'The Joneses'
Most every neighborhood houses a family that appears to be perfect and always has the latest and greatest consumer goods. Local Derrick Borte, raised in Norfolk and a current resident of Virginia Beach, has written and directed a soon-to-premiere feature film, The Joneses, that pulls back the curtain on one of these seemingly enviable families and reveals a startling twist - they're really stealth marketers. We'll talk with Borte about the film and his experience ushering it from page to screen.

It's Carl Kasell Day!
Longtime NPR newscaster Carl Kasell retired his alarm clock, and from his job with Morning Edition in December. That doesn't mean he's taking it easy. We'll talk to him about his career in broadcasting, his ongoing role as judge and scorekeeper on Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me! and his newest role with NPR, Roving Ambassador, which brings him to our studio. Those who miss hearing Carl Kasell during morning newscasts on Morning Edition, and aren't lucky enough to have his voice on their answering machine, will want to tune in for a conversation with the man himself.

Segment A: Tax Prep
It's that time of year again! Like it or not, the deadline for filing your taxes, April 15th, is looming. Today we'll talk with CPA Jean Moses about the changes in tax code you should know about. We'll also take your questions at 440-2665, 1-800-940-2240 or through

Segment B: Gloucester 40
This year's Daily Press 'Citizens of the Year' award went to the 'Gloucester 40'. This group of citizens grew concerned about the actions of their County Board of Supervisors and decided to petition the circuit court to ask that the officials be removed. What happened next took them by surprise - the judge who received the petitions threw them out and fined the group $80,000. They have appealed the fines and the Virginia Supreme Court will hear their case later this month - tune in to learn more about this fascinating group.

Segment A: Flight from Monticello
Michael Kranish is an author, historian and the Washington correspondent for The Boston Globe. During the 2004 Presidential campaign he began exploring the possibility of authoring a history on the Revolutionary War and came across the story of the 1781 invasion of Virginia, which caused then-Governor Thomas Jefferson and the legislature to abandon the capital in Richmond. This little-explored episode from Jefferson's life lit a spark of inspiration for Kranish and the resulting book Flight from Monticello: Thomas Jefferson at War has garnered rave reviews. Join us for an insightful conversation!

Segment B: Occult America
If you've ever used a Ouija board or played 'light as a feather, stiff as a board' at a slumber party many would say you've dabbled in the Occult. Today we talk with author Mitch Horowitz about his book Occult America: The Secret History of How Mysticism Shaped Our Nation which chronicles the ways in which 'alternative' practices and beliefs have impacted the history of our nation as a whole and individual searches for meaning. Join us!
