Rick Sebak, the man about town, hero to many, inspiration to more is on our show IN THE STUDIO this week to talk about his Pittsburgh History Series, the new special "A History of Pittsburgh in 17 Objects", living in Pittsburgh, and so much more! 

Cards on the table, Rick is a hero of Zach's, always has been, and it was WAY cool to have him in our studio, to answer questions from Zach's own nerdy curiosity muscle (a term I uses for his brain now and then... )

Our guest today is Laura Mustio. Laura is an artist and author who quit her job, set up a kick-starter, and raised money so that she could spend a year traveling to four countries, making art inspired by those locations. She is out now with a new book about this experience in India, Italy, Ireland and Iceland, and the exhibit of this work open this weekend at The Union Hall above Bar Marco in the Strip District. Laura stopped by last week to talk about this project, and what it's like to spend all of her time making art again.

On your program today is Tracy Certo, the founder and editor of "Next Pittsburgh" the new online multimedia magazine that is "taking Pittsburgh to the next level" by covering the innovative people, ideas, projects and events making Pittsburgh a better place. 

Tracy became well-known in town for her work as editor of Pop City Pittsburgh starting when it was founded back in 2006. Her devotion to the city and love of urban environments (especially Pittsburgh) lead her to create a brand new media outlet called Next Pittsburgh. She sat down to talk with me in late May about that project and why she chooses to do what she does.
