Starbucks, Bird's Nest and Alpacas . . . Oh My!

Posted at 11:34 AM on March 19, 2009 by Sanden Totten

Listener Mark Giorgini has his feet in two different worlds. He lives part time in Minnesota and part time in China. He also has a knack for catching some pretty interesting news stories. Listen in as Mark tells us about Starbucks' new deal with China, the fate of those amazing Olympic buildings and how a cute little alpaca has become a foul mouthed national hero.
