First hour: An update on U.S.-Russia relations

Second hour: The state of electric vehicle usage

Dueling publication weighed in recently on the question: who has been tougher on Russia, Trump or Obama? We'll discuss U.S. policy in regards to Russia, and how the ongoing Mueller investigation is affecting that relationship. Our guest has many years of experience in evaluating, teaching about, and contributing to this subject:

  • Randy Stone, director of the Skalny Center for Polish and Central European Studies at the University of Rochester

Then in our second hour, one of the barriers for drivers who are considering electric vehicles is that they don't find many places to plug in and charge up. What if that changed in a big way? That's the theme for the upcoming Passport to Workplace Charging and Electric Vehicle Showcase. We'll discuss the state of electric vehicle usage; the increasing adoption of plug-in capacity; environmental impact; and more. Our guests:

  • Carolyn Levine, program lead for Rochester EV Accelerator
  • Shannon Ealy, manager of the Office of Future Leadership for the Rochester Chamber of Commerce
  • Sue Hopkins, EV driver
  • Ben Prochazka, vice president of the Electrification Coalition
