We’re broadcasting from WEOS in Geneva, as we sit down with the new president of Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Joyce Jacobsen. Jacobsen is the 29th president of Hobart College and the 18th president of William Smith College. She is the Colleges' first female president.

Up until this year, one of the biggest conferences on wine in the world was held on the west coast, but now, it’s moving to the Finger Lakes. Our guests preview the first-ever FLXcursion and discuss the Finger Lakes’ place in the wine world:

We have a conversation with Governor Andrew Cuomo. We had an opportunity to speak with the governor about water levels in Lake Ontario; the 2020 election; and a number of other issues impacting New Yorkers, including the economy, marijuana, and drivers licenses for undocumented immigrants. We also hear from WXXI's Capitol Bureau Chief, Karen DeWitt
