Mayor Peduto

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto joins us for his monthly visit to the show. He'll discuss where things stand in the search for a new police chief as well as the best way to bridge the gap between the community and the police department. We'll also speak with the mayor about his opposition to cease and desist orders against ride-sharing companies and the future of bike lanes in Pittsburgh.

A People’s History of Pittsburgh

It’s been said every picture tells a story and the Hillman Photography Initiative at the Carnegie Museum of Art is seeking Pittsburghers' photos to tell the city’s story. Program Manager for the Hillman Photography Initiative Divya Rao Heffley explains this unique undertaking, which will be shared in a collective photo album.

To leave a question or comment before or after the show dial 412-256-8783. More Essential Pittsburgh segments can be heard here.
