    Radio Specials Commonwealth Club: Climate ONE EV Riders -- Most major automakers are offering models that plug into the grid -- cars that run on electricity alone, or a combination of electricity and gasoline. What's it like to own such a car? What are the costs? What are the benefits? For Andrea Kissack, KQED's senior science editor and owner of a Nissan LEAF, it was an environmental choice. "I could have cared less about cars for my entire life," she says, but she felt she needed a car that didn't conflict with her reporting and learning. An early EV advocate, back in 2006 Felix Kramer drove a converted plug-in Prius. "My dream came true," he said, "when the Chevy VOLT came to market." He was the number nine buyer of the VOLT, and within two months, he bought a second plug-in, the LEAF. Kissack and Kramer discuss EVs, along with John Kalb, founder of EV Charging Pros.

    Forum The Power of Positive Female Connection Christine Bronstein says the word "friend" isn't adequate to describe the women in her life. Instead, she calls them her "wives": the women who supported her through marriage, divorce and postpartum depression. Now Bronstein says that sisterhood can make women stronger as a whole -- and she's turned it into a private social network called A Band of Wives. Made up of 5,000 members, topics range from career and glass ceilings to motherhood and abortion. Bronstein and other women discuss that sisterhood and their new book, "Nothing But the Truth So Help Me God: 51 Women Reveal the Power of Positive Female Connection."
