What to look for on Smart Talk Wednesday, October 10, 2018:
Since Smart Talk debuted this week in 2008, we’ve heard from you often about the topics and issues that you find most interesting, compelling and important. Environmental issues and the environment are always at the top of the list.
Whether it is climate change, the impact of natural gas drilling, renewable energy, invasive species, clean water and air or preserving land — environmental issues resonate with Smart Talk listeners.
As the Smart Talk 10th anniversary week continues, we look back Wednesday at Pennsylvania’s environment over the past 10 years and what lies ahead in the future with former Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Secretary David Hess and author of the Pennsylvania Constitutional Amendment guaranteeing clean air and water, former Senator Franklin Kury.

Also on Smart Talk, 9th Congressional district candidate Denny Wolff (D) is in the studio to talk about the election and his position on the issues. Wolff is a lifelong resident of Columbia County and a fifth-generation dairy farmer. The 9th Congressional District is made up of Lebanon, Schuylkill, Columbia and parts of Berks, Carbon, Northumberland, Luzerne, and Montour Counties.
Smart Talk invited the candidates for the U.S. Senate, House of Representatives and governor to appear on the program so that voters can hear where they stand. The conversations are intended to allow candidates to state their positions and to provide information to voters to help them decide which candidates to support.
