  • OSU Carbon Markets: Ohio State’s University Farm Science Review is this week. It’s one of the biggest agricultural exhibitions in the state. And right now, one of the biggest topics throughout the event is carbon markets. WYSO’s Alejandro Figueroa explains what those are and how they work.
  • Respect for Marriage Bill: A bill on federal protections for same-sex and interracial marriages won’t be voted on in the US Senate till after the November election, though nearly a quarter of all House Republicans joined all Democrats in voting for the bill in July.

A chance meeting with a volunteer in a college computer lab in 1987 brought Mike to WYSO. He started filling in for various music shows, and performed various production, news, and on-air activities during the late 1980s and 90s, spinning vinyl and cutting tape before the digital evolution.
