Our monthly series, The Accountability Index, continues this morning with a closer look at the Port Covington project that Under Armour 's CEO Kevin Plank is proposing.  It’s one of the biggest waterfront developments in Baltimore since the Inner Harbor.  But are private developers driving the planning?  Tom talks about that with Baltimore Brew reporters Fern Shen and Ed Gunts.

Then, as temperatures plummet, a status report on efforts to care for the thousands of Baltimoreans who are homeless this winter.  Dr. Jaquelyn Duval-Harvey, the director of the Mayor’s Office on Human Services, and Kevin Lindamood, the CEO of Health Care for the Homeless in Baltimore, join Tom in the studio to discuss new strategies for helping people deal with housing insecurity.

And as the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra celebrates its centennial, Tom talks with BSO oboist and author Michael Lisicky, whose new book, A Century of Sound, chronicles the first hundred years of this cultural colossus.
