Ben is a full-time and part-time organic farmer. By day he works as the Organic Farm Manager for the University of Kentucky's Organic Farming Research and Education Farm, a job he has held for the previous five years. The university farm is home to a 80-member CSA, grant-funded research, and extension and education efforts relating to organic vegetable production in Kentucky. By night he operates his own (leased) farm in Fayette County, Kentucky where he grows organic sweet potatoes, cabbage, winter squash, and watermelons on 10 acres.

"What's been so great about having the farm is because it has created a visual component to the organic agriculture program [at the University of Kentucky]."

"I've found this movement of young farmers is very inclusive. There's a lot of passion."

-- Ben Abell on Greenhorn Radio

Welcome to a politically-charged episode of Nothing Urgent! Derek Evers and Christopher Robbins are joined in the studio by journalist Marina Galperina to discuss her coverage of the Russian feminist performance art group, Pussy Riot. Learn about the history of the group, their actions that lead to their imprisonment, and why the original group has dissolved. Find out why Nadia and Masha have decided to promote Russian prison reform, and why they performed at the Amnesty International benefit in Brooklyn. Learn more about Russian politics, and how Putin's Russia subdues revolution and protest. Later, Tessa Stuart joins the program to talk about pedestrian fatalities in New York City. Tessa recently wrote an article on the subject for Village Voice entitled "Don't Walk", and stops by to explain how the law aims to punish these drivers, but often does not get upheld. Are there enough detectives to adequately investigate the numerous collisions that occur weekly? Find out on this week's edition of Nothing Urgent! Thanks to our sponsor, Heritage Foods USA. Music by EULA.

"Any opposition group in Russia has a difficult time organizing, so erhaps the Pussy Riot breakup is good. In their breakup letter, they specifically outline what the group was about and the things they stood for." [17:30]

-- Marina Galperina on Nothing Urgent

"Cops don't think these are sexy crimes. No one becomes a cop to investigate pedestrian accidents." [47:30]

-- Tessa Stuart on Nothing Urgent
