After all the months of barnstorming, debating, robocalling, political mailings, and door knocking, the election is finally over. And with our current political reality in mind, we'll bring you a show all about "New Beginnings" — from the political to the personal to the environmental. We'll hear about a plan to "re-green" Baltimore's Inner Harbor with floating wetlands made in part from trash. We'll meet a Virginia teen who's learning to walk again after a devastating spinal cord injury. And we'll talk with a former nun who chose a new path as a businesswoman and mother.
