JUDY WICKS founded the White Dog Cafe on the first floor of her house along a row of threatened brownstones in West Philadelphia. Over the years she grew what began as a small muffin shop into a 200-seat restaurant serving fresh local food while earning a reputation for her activism and commitment to her community, the environment, ethical business practices and building the local economy.

She joins Marty in the studio to talk about her life, her work, and her passions.
