Recent conversations have included "Ethics: Closer to Home", with Susann Mark, Esq. Chair of Providence Ethics Commission; "DACA: From Dream to Limbo with Deportation?" with Kathy Cloutier, executive director, Dorcas International Institute; "A New Voice on the Council" with Mary Kay Harris; and "The Gangs of Providence" with Detective Sergeant Michael Wheeler.
