Baltimore needs big investment in infrastructure like roads and sewers. But, what about the city’s Internet infrastructure? We talk with a deputy mayor and a technology educator about Baltimore’s digital future.

Then, as Sandtown-Winchester looks to its future, more than 30 neighborhood churches are helping to shape its path. Pastors of two of them, Amelia Harris of Newborn Community of Faith Church, and Lewis Wilson of New Song Community Church, talk with Tom Hall about their plans in the wake of the riots.

Plus, theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck reviews Chesapeake Shakespeare Company’s production of “The Comedy of Errors.

And, poet Sue Ellen Thompson talks with Tom about the core of her latest work, a collection called “They.” She explores her relationships with her parents and with her transgender child.

Growing Baltimore's High-Speed Internet Infrastructure

Baltimore has a lot of pressing infrastructure issues: leaky sewers, decaying bridges, lots of other transportation needs. And there’s another important item to add to the list: digital infrastructure, the cables and wires that connect city residents to the Internet. If you look at a map of super high-speed Internet availability in central Maryland, you’ll see Baltimore surrounded by opportunities to connect to the latest fiber-optics networks. But in the city, itself, it’s a different story – there is no residential fiber-optic service.

A new draft report from a task force on moving the city forward into a digital future calls for expanded broadband access throughout the city. I spoke about it with the co-chair of that task force, Deputy Mayor Colin Tarbert. With Baltimore still recovering from the unrest in April – I asked him how technological investment fits into the city’s long-term plan to reinvigorate itself. We also spoke with Andrew Coy, executive director of the Digital Harbor Foundation about how tech investment can transform our schools.

How Faith Is Shaping Sandtown-Winchester

At one time, there were more than 50 churches in the Sandtown-Winchester neighborhood in Baltimore. There are now more than 30, which still represents a high concentration of churches in the 72 square block area that Sandtown encompasses. What can and should these churches be doing in this neighborhood, which has long struggled with high unemployment, poverty, addiction, and crime? We explore that question with two pastors who are doing a lot. Pastor Amelia Harris is the co-pastor of the Newborn Community of Faith Church. She has lived and worked in Sandtown with her husband, Elder C. W. Harris, for more than 30 years. Dr. Louis Wilson is here in the studio as well. He came to Sandtown from Chicago in January, accepting the call to lead the New Song Community Church.

Red Line; Lea Gilmore; "Pippin"; Charleston

What does Gov. Larry Hogan’s cancellation of the Red Line in Baltimore mean for public transportation in the city? We talk with urban design expert Klaus Philipsen, a consultant on the project.

Then, both an activist and a jazz-blues-and-gospel artist, Lea Gilmore sings for change. Tom Hall talks with her about the overlap between her work in the studio and her work in social justice.

Plus, J. Wynn Rousuck talks with Tom about the Tony-award winning musical Pippin, now at the Hippodrome.

And, as Charleston lays to rest the pastor of Emanuel AME Church, what lessons can Baltimore take about how to move forward? We ask Rev. Jules Dunham Howie, of Bethel, Baltimore’s oldest AME church.

Simple Poems About Complex Topics

Credit Turning Point Books

In poet Sue Ellen Thompson's most recent collection of poems, They, she reflects on her relationship with her transgender child, and the ways in which that child’s identity animates and informs complex questions, and steadfast love.  Last December, way before Caitlin Jenner was in the news, Sue Ellen Thompson crossed the bridge from her home in Oxford to talk with Tom Hall about this powerful and provocative collection of poems.
