A plan has been proposed to relieve traffic and put a tunnel under the infamous Gowanus Canal. Is this a necessary infrastructure upgrade or a pipe dream? We’re digging for answers! Jack Ford is one of the Emmy Award-winning hosts of MetroFocus, but did you know he’s also an attorney, a Yale law professor and a former winner on Jeopardy? Now, he sits down to discuss his recent achievement—authoring the new book, “Chariot on the Mountain,” that takes us back to the Antebellum South.

Aired on August 1, 2018 & August 23, 2019.
