Show Summary

Today’s show is all about Music, Place, and Influence: We start with one local artist who’s really making some noise with her debut EP, Alive Today! Singer/songwriter, Christie Palazzolo is up first.

And later in the show – we talk about The ties between architecture and science. Building a sense of place for healing and discovery. If you’re a designer, an architect, a healer, a hospital worker – or if you’re in school for design or architecture – or the health sciences, or even if you’re not feeling right about your surroundings – you’ll want to tune in for our second guest (yes, it weird how all these things go together – and yet they do), … renowned immunologist, speaker and author of Healing Spaces, Dr. Esther Sternberg joins us on the show. You will find her work fascinating!

Speaking of healing – when you tune into this show, you will note that, yes, I sound different… Full disclosure: I have a cold – and it’s making me sound, like a cross between the Dirty Jobs guy, Mike Rowe, and Maude from Golden Girls… :)  I digress... the show must go on!
