“Maglev” is a technology that could whisk passengers from Baltimore to Washington in 15 minutes.  But at what cost?  We get a reality check from the CEO of ‘The North East Maglev,’  Wayne Rogers and Brian O’Malley of the Central Maryland Transportation Alliance.

Then – Amy Scott, who covers education for Marketplace from her perch here at WYPR, talks to Tom Hall about the film she’s just produced:  Oyler  tells how a community school in Cincinnati transformed itself and the lives of many of its poor students

Plus: After a career in advertising, Ronald Smith has turned to writing the kinds of stories for young people HE’d like to read.  He tells us about his scary debut novel Hoodoo.
