"Safe Streets" In Baltimore; Blockbuster Summer Movies; Cleaning Up The Harbor

Baltimore suffered more homicides in May than any month in two and a half decades. And the violent crime has not stopped so far in June. We talk about how to stop the violence with two men working to do just that, through “Safe Streets,” an organization at work in four city neighborhoods.

Then, what makes for a better movie: Tom Hardy blowing stuff up, or a Beach Boys biopic? Tom Hall asks our movie gurus, Jed Dietz of the Maryland Film Festival and Ann Hornaday, film critic for The Washington Post.

Plus: There’s a plan out there to make Baltimore’s harbor swimmable and fishable by 2020. But, the harbor got another F this year on an annual report card about water quality. We talk about the slow progress to clean up the harbor.
