Glenn tried hundreds of cases in his 30 years as a prosecutor, including more than 50 murder trials, multiple lengthy RICO trials and precedent-setting cases.
39 minutes Kevin and I have become friends over the past few years since the old show died. Kevin was a long time listener and we often emailed back-and-forth during the old show days but he really showed up as a genuine friend like so many of the rest of you did when that show and period of my life ended.
I quickly learned as I have about so many of you, how intelligent and educated, passionate and kind, as well as very funny Kevin is.
Co-owner of Slate Hill Edible Forest in Central New York, a 27 acre fruit orchard, biodiversity collection, and experimental farm focused on adaptation to a changing climate. Kevin has advanced degrees in chemistry and molecular biology from Caltech and MIT. Before going into farming full time he spent 10 years of his life on a massive worldwide exploration of 122 countries. Kevin’s current projects at Slate Hill Edible Forest include an apricot breeding program, restoring old school hard cider cultivars, and a 300 Fruit Variety Living Maze.
