[0:00] Brendan has a copy of the city’s new pit bull registration packet.

[6:17] Mike reads from Seth Godin’s new book, Poke the Box, and we say nice things about Billy Breault and Gary Vecchio.

Catherine Burgess, Editor-in-Chief, The Crusader:

The deficiency of writers exists because there is a fear that if you do write something, people might read it.

[14:25] The city is probably not going to raise the fine for public marijuana use, despite Mr. Breault’s efforts.

[18:10] We read the death notice for C.Y. Harvey, Turtle Boy sculptor.


[25:30] Worcester Magazine has a big article on heroin in Worcester. We made a video to go along with it, interviewing Rod Witkos of Wormtown Medic.
