Passover robots and a state Agriculture Department first
We bring extra springtime in the studio today, now that it's warm!
We welcome Ashley Randle, the first female-identifying commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources. She tells about some of the department's plans, raising cows, and farming across the Bay State — both rural and urban.
Then we get into the very un-Jewish past of Springfield with editor and podcaster Mark Oppenheimer of the podcast "Unorthodox." He also keys us into some of the new traditions folx might see in their Passover festivities.
(Chag Sameach to those celebrating!)
And Rep. Jim McGovern sidesteps the indictment debacle. With that much-needed breath of fresh air, we instead learn how he's on the Congressional Robotics Caucus, that the caucus actually exists, and how his work with that group led to a recent visit to Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
And then, an alarming amount of Star Wars references happen. They may or may not be acronym-related.
