Avoiding the Con in Construction with "The Contractress" Kia Ricchi

06/01/15 - When most homeowners choose to employ a contractor for upgrades or repairs, they usually expect to hire a burly construction guy.

But, perhaps not.  On our next Topical Currents, we’re “At Your Service” with a woman known as “the contractress.”  She’s Kia Ricchi, author of the book, “Avoiding the Con in Construction.” We’ll have tips for repairs . . . and how to get ready for storms.  That’s Topical Currents . . . Monday at 1pm.

WLRN Radio's Joseph Cooper says producing and hosting Topical Currents is the most rewarding experience of his long radio career, which began at the University of Missouri School of Journalism in the 1970s.
Richard Ives came to WLRN in September 2000 to begin a new career in radio. Born in Fort Lauderdale, his family moved to Long Island, New York, where he grew up. After graduation from college and an unsatisfying stint in a job that, as he puts it, "paid the bills but for which I had no passion" he found himself contemplating a midlife career change after being laid-off.
