One in four residents of Baltimore lives in a food desert, without easy access to healthy eating options.  Holly Freishtat, from the City Food Policy Office and Robert Thomas, who oversees Baltimore’s Public Markets, tell us what the city is doing to solve the problem of food insecurity.

Then, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will be in Milwaukee on Thursday night to face-off in their 7th debate.  James Blue is producing this event for the PBS Newshour.  He’ll give us the inside scoop about all that goes on before the candidates take the stage.

Then, when Diana Nyad swam from Cuba to Florida in 2013, she inspired millions with her tenacity and determination.  She’s speaking at the Meyerhoff tomorrow night.  She speaks with us this morning.

And, Theater Critic J Wynn Rousuck has a review of Under the Skin at the Everyman Theater.  First, the news.
