January 27: Baltimore's Teens--A Public Health Study


Do poor teens in Baltimore face worse conditions than their counterparts in Nigeria, as a recent study suggests? On Tuesday’s Marc Steiner Show, Marc looks at the study, published in December's Journal of Adolescent Health, with: Dr. Kristin Mmari, Assistant Professor in the Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health; Dr. Lawrence Brown, public health consultant and Assistant Professor of Public Health in the School of Community Health and Policy at Morgan State University; and Dr. Roni Ellington, Associate Professor of Mathematics Education at Morgan State University.    

At 10:40 Marc examines the verdict released today in the case of Jeffrey Sterling, the ex-CIA agent accused of releasing classified information to a reporter. Sterling was convicted on all nine counts. Marc talks with Marcy Wheeler, "Right to Know" investigative journalist for ExposeFacts and blogger at emptywheel.net. Wheeler writes widely about the legal aspects of the "war on terror" and its effects on civil liberties.

At 11:00 it’s the latest episode of Sound Bites, the series about our food and our world. In this episode Marc examines changes in Maryland's environmental and agricultural policy under new Governor Larry Hogan. With: Elaine Lutz, attorney for the Maryland Office of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation; and Gerald Winegrad, attorney and Adjunct Professor at the University of Maryland School of Public Policy where he has taught a graduate course on Chesapeake Bay Restoration since 1988.

At 11:30, Carole Morison, poultry farmer and owner of Bird's Eye View Farm in Pocomoke City, talks about the expansion of her farm and crowd sourcing campaign.
