We meet storysmith Karl Smith for chat on the Charlotte Pier. We take a ride in a hot air balloon, and ponder astronomy. We hear Rochesterians talk about paying dues, the best Sunday tunes, and favorite cookbooks. We visit three area farms with unique specialties in garlic, livestock, and alpacas. We take an inside look at segregation in Rochester's school districts. Dan Martello explains the finer points of salt and shows us three ways to prepare tomatoes. We learn how to make bread and how to impress your friends with cheese. Finally, we meet the creative duo behind Walke Moore Tools.
