Candidate Conversations: Dover City Council

Dover’s April 20th municipal election has a single contested race with three candidates vying for City Council’s at-large seat.

And on this week’s edition of the Green, Delaware Public Media’s Roman Battaglia talks to a pair of those candidates - Andre Boggerty and LaVaughn McCutchen.

Those interviews and one with the third candidate, Michael Lewis can be found here.  Lewis' interview will air on The Green April 16th.

Junior League of Wilmington Kitchen Tours adapts to pandemic

This month, Delawareans can visit nine of the finest kitchens in Wilmington and Brandywine Valley.

But unlike years past, The Junior League of Wilmington’s Kitchen Tour fundraiser will be completely virtual.

The event’s chair Tara Wheeler recently chatted with Delaware Public Media’s Kelli Steele about how this reimagined version of the tour is devised to provide an experience similar to what was offered in-person.

Enlighten Me: UD professor studies Antarctica’s melting ice

Antarctica is half a world away from Delaware. But the way its ice melts due to climate change will affect how much sea levels rise all over the world—including the east coast of the U.S.

One University of Delaware researcher is trying to better understand how this melting happens. He sets off to Antarctica next January to do just that.

In this week’s Enlighten Me, Delaware Public Media’s Sophia Schmidt talks with coastal physical oceanographer and UD assistant professor Carlos Moffat about his plans for the five-year research and education grant he received from the National Science Foundation.
