The Marc Steiner Show

Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-noon

The Marc Steiner Show, a production of the Center for Emerging Media, first aired on March 3, 1993, with an episode in which panelists debated the controversial birth control method, Norplant. Since that date, Marc has never shied away from grappling with the tough issues of the day, and has continued to bring the voices of all stakeholders to the airwaves – acknowledging that an informed listenership is critical to a true democracy, and trusting that educated listeners are capable of making their own decisions on issues that affect them. The topics of The Marc Steiner Show are wide-ranging, and include arts and culture; education; homelessness; international, state and local politics; women’s issues; prisons and prisoners; religion; science; sports; sustainable farming; and the environment.

Baltimore City Privatizing Public Housing?

Mar 4, 2014

A week after the Baltimore Brew broke the story that Baltimore City is negotiating to sell most of its public housing high-rises to private developers, we considered this news with Jeff Singer, founder and former Executive Director of Health Care for the Homeless, and Melody Simmons, veteran journalist who wrote the Baltimore Brew article.
