Tapping into the Fordham University community to discuss and uncover issues that impact our world locally and beyond.

Culture and community, over a beer: We visit KGB bar in the east village—where they've been hosting free readings most nights for years—and talk with owner Denis Woychuk about changes in the neighborhood, his colorful clientele, and why culture should be free.
