Ham Radio & Update With 'Food Babe' Vani Hari

Amateur radio operators have been around for a long time. In fact, this week HAMS - as the operators are known - are celebrating amateur radio's 100 year anniversary. In cases of emergency events or weather, HAMS are called upon to help larger media outlets and the National Weather Service. There are over 20,000 of these folks in North Carolina and another 9,500+ in South Carolina. We talk with two HAMS and learn about their craft. Then we get an update from Vani Hari, known as the 'Food Babe' about her latest endeavors, including encouraging the restaurant Subway to remove a chemical additive from their bread.
