Afternoon Shift

About

A daily conversation about news, culture and ideas.

May. 11, 2012

On Friday's Afternoon Shift we talk with and about lots of friends from the neighborhood. First we examine the phenomenon of mothers and daughters being BFFs. Is that a positive development for the rest of the family? Then we talk with two very friendly neighbors for The 3@3- Brian Babylon and Peter Sagal of Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me! fame. EveryBlock founder Adrian Holovaty talks about how data can transform our understanding of community. Then Alison Cuddy brings us the story of people who are reimagining that center of neighborhood life, the library. And finally, the friendliest cellist in this neighborhood or any other, Yo-Yo Ma joins us to talk about his exceptional career.
