Universal Basic Income, a program popularized --by presidential candidate Andrew Yang, might be coming to a Connecticut city.
This hour, we talk with members of a task force that are working to create a pilot program in Hartford, providing UBI to a select group of single parents. Universal Basic Income test programs have popped up in California and other parts of the globe - we talk about who benefits and who will pay for it.

Later, we hear from the founders of the Hartford Poetry Bus.
We want to hear from you.
