We heard about one group of social entrepreneurs that is trying to help with the growing humanitarian crisis in Somalia. Are organic strawberries just as toxic as non-organic ones? New Jersey’s Seton Hall University is lowering its tuition for certain qualifying students. Maine cranks up the speed limit on a rural stretch of interstate. And Kai spoke with Tiffany Shlain about her new documentary that focuses on how life intersects with the Internet. Here are the songs we played:
