What's Cooking? A Peek Inside Connecticut Food Trucks

Want a spicy but refreshing mangonada to go with that enchiladas con carne? Head down to New Haven's Long Wharf Drive where a long line of food trucks serve up an eclectic array of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Central, and South American specialities. A little salsa music too. Long Wharf is one of the city's four recently established food vending districts, a program getting some mixed reviews from street food providers. For $2,500 a year, food trucks get a designated spot each day. At Long Wharf, another $500 gets them hooked up to electricity. It's good when business is booming. But restrictive when it's not, say some vendors. This hour, we go inside the somewhat nomadic existence of these roadside chefs. We look at what other communities in Connecticut are doing -- or not doing -- to adapt their permitting and zoning regulations to keep up with what industry researchers say is a nearly $1 billion business in the U.S. Are you a food truck operator struggling to make ends meet?

Reflecting On The Moon Landing, 50 Years Later

Fifty years ago, man walked on the moon. But before that happened, millions held their breath at each stage of the Apollo 11 mission, starting with the launch. This hour we talk about the lasting impact of this historic moment--a feat of engineering, science, and political will. We also look at the pivotal role Connecticut technology played in spaceflight, and hear how engineers in this state helped make that “one small step” possible. Support the show.
