All Things Considered

Weekdays 5pm-7pm, and Weekends 5pm-6pm

All Things Considered is a vital daily companion to people who strive to stay informed and in touch. Since its debut in 1971, All Things Considered has offered in-depth reporting in context, and transformed the way listeners understand the world.

In 1995, 22-year-old Steven Mallory imagined a life completely unlike his own — one without gangs, drugs and welfare dependency. He imagined having a solid family and savings.

But in Dayton, Ohio, he had a job literally doing the city's dirty work: cleaning up after the garbage trucks dumped their load at the county incinerator.

He had been a fast-living teenage drug dealer, making about $500 or $600 a day. Given to fancy cars and expensive suits, he had been known on the streets of West Dayton as Monte Carlos.
