Metro Council interviews

In this week’s show, Studio 619 brings you the latest three interviews in our series of conversations with Louisville’s Metro Council members. This week, we talked with District Seven Councilman Ken Fleming, District Eight Councilman Tom Owen and District Nine Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh.

Equine Program

Providing employment training and therapy to a group of at-risk youth is the focus of a new program at Boys’ Haven in Louisville. The Equine Program provides students who would otherwise be unemployable, with valuable job skills. It’s also designed to help youth who’ve suffered abuse. WFPL’s Julie Goodwin talks with Boys’ Haven Development Director Jim Grote and Board Member Elizabeth George about the program.

Elizabeth Gilbert

Many people suffer deep depression at the end of a marriage, and many want to run away. Author Elizabeth Gilbert turned her personal struggle into a quest for pleasure, spiritual enlightenment and love. Join WFPL’s Robin Fisher as she talks with Gilbert about her journey and her new book, “Eat Pray Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia.”
